Audio Postcard: 'Friendship Rocks' Add Wonder And Adventure Amid Isolation
Amalie Pratt is 10 years old and lives on a gravel back road near the Elmore-Morristown line. Since she's been learning from home, she and her dad have been talking daily treks through the neighborhood. Those walks have turned into a hunt for friendship rocks.
The rocks are painted with words or symbols, or made to look like something else. Amalie and her dad started finding them a few weeks ago. The discovery inspired her to create her own painted rocks to add to what they've found.
Amalie hopes the friendship rocks will add a little adventure to the lives of others who are spending their time learning or working from home.
