Reader Email – Getting kids interested in geology

A reader named Steve recently wrote to us, asking about fossil collecting activities and geology books for young children.

I’m thinking about taking my kids, 5 and 6 years old, to look for fossils. I live in San Rafael, just north of SF. Is Capitola a good place? How about up by Redding? Any other advice of nearby places, or places on the way to Lake Tahoe? My kids can hike, but I’m looking for something not too strenuo.us

Also, how about a book to recommend. I had a geology class in college, but otherwise don’t know much about rocks or fossils beyond the basics…

Thanks for the email Steve!

Capitola is a fantastic place to look for fossils, with specimens easily available right along the beach! And it’s not too far away from the San Francisco Bay Area.

We’ve actually written about Capitola twice before.

As far as geology books go that are oriented for the young ones, I’m not sure off the top of my head. A quick search on Amazon returned these results.

Anyway fellow readers, what say you?
