Overview

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.

Daniel Loxton writes a book about Evolution for children. Nothing else needs to be said.

Excellent book. Very well written, but tackles some hard questions in a difficult subject. Bought it for my daughter for her birthday, but I had to read it before wrapping it. Illustrations are quite good also. Highly recommended.
