I have a recreation leader who is looking for a book that she remembers, and
she says several of her staff remember this book vaguely, but no one can
come up with an author or title, so I hope someone here recognizes it. She
doesnıt remember how long ago she saw it, and her staff is all different
ages, so I canıt give a time frame for the book.

The bookıs main character is a rock with feelings, who starts his journey in
a very rough state, and as his journey progresses, becomes more polished.
She described the book as being a metaphor for lifeıs journey. The
illustrations may be watercolors.

I have searched several library catalogs and online bookstores using
combinations of the words rock, stone, pebble, boulder, journey, polish. It
is not ³Everybody needs a rock² by Baylor, or ³The rock² by Parnall, or
³Gift from the sea² by Banks.

If anyone can help, she would be eternally grateful.
Many thanks in advance,
