January 7th 2020 - Old Rock Day

Celebrate Every Day With Books 

It seems like everyday has some new theme to celebrate so I thought it might be fun to see what kind of interesting books I can find (new, old, or coming soon) for an everyday holiday. In fact, most days have more than one holiday!




“The unofficial holiday encourages people to acknowledge, celebrate, and learn more about old rocks and fossils.” (from timeanddate.com)

Just so you know I have not read most of these but the ones I pick seem the most interesting. You can probably find tons more books for each holiday but I am only going to pick two books for one holiday a day.

Let me know what you think. Do any of them seem interesting to you? Is there another book you think would be a better choice?
