Book Description

Feb. 1 2010 1554534305 978-1554534302
Evolution is the process that created the terrible teeth of Tyrannosaurus rex and the complex human brain, clever enough to understand the workings of nature. Young readers will learn how a British naturalist named Charles Darwin studied nature and developed his now-famous concepts of natural selection and survival of the fittest. And how modern-day science has added to our understanding of the theory of evolution. Can something as complex and wondrous as the natural world be explained by a simple theory? The answer is yes, and now Evolution explains how in a way that makes it easy to understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great gift for a young friend Nov. 20 2010
As a writer, I'm always feel a bit jealous about how powerfully great illustration communicates. Words just can't do that! The writing in Evolution is solid, but it's the artwork that works. I was delighted by the images in this book as an adult; as a kid, I would have been blown away ... and I would have gotten a lot of solid information about biology and evolution along the way. The tone is firmly in the "nature is neat" category, enthusiastically and matter-of-factly communicating essential and interesting biology, no preaching, no lecturing. And with really interesting dino paintings from cover to cover!

We all have books that we remember from childhood, and this will surely be a book for the current crop of small humans to remember.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Neat Book July 23 2014
This book is a must read for young people. I let my friend and his little fellow spend time with my copy and it quickly became the little rascal's favorite book! The illustrations are super duper and the storyline is thrilling, with many unexpected turns and spine chilling action sequences. By the time the denouement rolls around, the reader finally gets a breath, realizing that they've just been through an absolute roller coaster of literary and visual exposition. The author is precise; clinically so, in the execution of this fine piece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book Jan. 29 2013

This book has wonderful illustrations, accurate information, and for those with particular conflicts between science and religion, this book does not challenge this concern.

An important addition to children's literature which is sadly lacking in evolutionary information. "Evolution: How We and All Living Things Came to Be" explains the natural world in a way that is easy to understand.
