Have you ever held a rock in your hand and wondered:

How did this come to be?

Carmela LaVigna Coyle’s new picture book takes readers on an epic journey through time. Through ice ages, meteor showers, and earthquakes, readers experience the formation of an ancient treasure.

Meanwhile, somewhere in the present, a little girl sets out on a hike with her family.

The two parallel stories collide when the little girl finds something SPECTACULAR on the side of a trail—a treasure forged over the course of hundreds of MILLIONS of years all leading to this very moment—the discovery of a precious heart rock.
