“I Found a Rock” is a children’s book that celebrates the quirky childhood habit of collecting rocks. It tells the fun, relatable story of Koala Girl’s rock hunting adventures.

About the Book

A right-sized story in a right-sized book.

This book was made for kids 0 – 6 years old. Its 8 x 8 inch square shape is easy for little hands to hold. The hardback cover is tough to tear. The plot is real and relatable, with some silly surprises. And the story has a pattern that makes it easy for little ones to memorize and “read” with you.

A bit about me.

My name is Jen Benz and I live in Boise, Idaho. I’m a mom with a two year old, five year old, and a full-time tech job. I enjoy learning new things and being outside my comfort zone.

For my 2019 New Year’s resolution (that would be a little over a year ago), I decided to learn to draw.

I mean, why not?

I practiced for a year and then wrote and illustrated the book “I Found a Rock,” which is a true story about both of my girls.
