Evolution

Overview

Starting out with tiny, one-celled organisms that lived in the ocean, life on Earth began about 3.5 billion years ago. Today, life is everywhere -- in all shapes, sizes, and varieties. How did one species give rise to millions of others? For one thing, this change happened over a long time.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-A fast, furious, and ultimately confusing trip through a millennia-long process. Starting with a brief explanation of evolution, this book races through an "interview" with a giraffe, a look at the elephant's evolutionary family tree, the "artificial selection" of the dog, Charles Darwin and the voyage of the Beagle, the Scopes trial, etc. Interspersed are color photos, diagrams, illustrations, maps, and several "investigations" to attempt and quick flashes of factoids in colorful boxes. Skip this one, and stick with Linda Gamlin's fact-filled Evolution (DK, 1993) or Stephen Webster's The Kingfisher Book of Evolution (Kingfisher, 2000).-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
