Geology is an important part in natural sciences in order to understand various common natural phenomena, particularly geohazards. However we has less opportunities to learn it during high school period. On contrary, the high school students are sometimes learning about geology when they visit shortly in universities. The short visits are doing sometimes under a (governmental) program of a linkage between universities and (junior) high schools. During the opportunities, the students study about geology through various outdoor works and indoor experiments, and also they receive several original texts. They of course understand the lectures at the time using the texts, but they may apt to forget partly (or completely) the contents after several (or one) day(s). It is because of less geology lectures in the high school. We consider that it is necessary an idea to keep the geological minds and thoughts for long time after the short visits.
In this paper, we propose a new style on guide books which students want to carry always attaching on a school bag or so. It is an accessory-like mini geology book. If the mini book is a souvenir in the short visit, the students would attach it on their bags, and they may keep the geological minds and thoughts. The students can make it by themselves, so that the host person would not need any time for the preparations.
