*Hiroshi Hagiya1 (1.Tokyo City University)

Keywords:pictorial encyclopedia, earth science education, rocks

Case study to publish a children's encyclopedia of Rocks, Minerals and Fossils will be introduced. Shogakukan's encyclopedia for childrens NEO of Rocks, Minerals and Fossils published in June 2012. The author concerned with the compiling and editing of the Rocks part of the encyclopedia. The remarkable point is zoomed photographs of rock-forming minerals, for exsample, to show the difference of reflecting light color on cleavage of mica and hornblende crystals in the rocks, to recognize the points for identification of rocks. There seems to be necessary to make simple useful guide for rocks in some Geo-Park in Japan not only for children but adults. Some hint fo edit guide will be proposed.
