Discover the story of life on Earth and how it came to be, with real-life scientists Sarah Darwin and Eva Maria Sadowski.
The Earth has come a very long way from the molten planet with oceans of magma that existed 4.5 billion years ago. Since then, the land has shifted, the climate has changed, and life has flourished. But how exactly did living things come to be?

Let real-life scientists Sarah Darwin and Eva Maria Sadowski enlighten you about the fascinating facts of evolution: what it is and how it works. Dive into the history of life on Earth and learn about the theory of natural selection that Sarah’s great-great-grandfather, Charles Darwin, and naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace came up with together. In this beautifully illustrated book, feature spreads explain the important things that you need to know and a timeline plots the history of life on Earth.

Budding botanists will be delighted by this in-depth tour of life that leaves no stone unturned and will keep children (and adults) enthralled for hours. Find out how plants, humans, pet dogs, and everything else came to be and what this might mean for our future.

Evolution is an absolute wonderful book to have for our homeschool library!

The subject matter is presented in a highly detailed, yet rudimentary way that isn't overwhelming for readers of any age.
We are taken on an amazing journey from the beginning of time; life's origins with the very first organism leading to the diversity we have today, as well as the future for our planet.

The illustrations are great. The are well done enough to keep my children's attention for longer periods of time, and the open the door for further conversations such as farming thousands of years ago.

Evolution makes for an engaging and informative book that effectively introduces the concept of evolution to readers of all ages.
