Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Even though the idea of evolution was discussed and thought about for many centuries, Charles Darwin is the man given credit for the Theory of Evolution because of his how-and-why information about the formation of species. When he was asked to travel around the world to gather scientific information, he ultimately drew pictures of a variety of birds that he later learned were all finches. That got him wondering if the finches were all created differently from the beginning. Because of his Theory of Evolution, a great debate took place in 1860 with basically the same outcome we have today: The Evolution Theory vs. the Biblical theory. This book is written in graphic format, a favorite of mine. It makes it perfect for students who are reluctant readers who never seem to finish a book on their own. Young adults who want to read anything they can get their hands on will also enjoy the graphics and the fast-paced text. The full color graphics make an enormous impact on the story. The end of the book includes suggestions for writing prompts, discussion questions, and a mini biography about the author and illustrator. The author includes a “Glossary” with a pronunciation guide and a list of other books and web sites that might be of interest to the reader. These web sites are particularly helpful as they provide step-by-step instructions for using Facthound. I do recommend this book Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs
