Published by Kids Can Press, 2010.


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 this book explains explains how in a way that makes it easy to understand for young readers.

Evolution: How We and All Living Things Came to Be also answers some frequently asked questions:
  • What happened to the missing links that prove species evolved?
  • Have we ever actually seen a species evolve?
  • How could something as complicated as the human eye evolve through small steps?
  • How could a simple theory explain something as complex as the diversity of life around us?
Brought to life with amazing computer-generated images, illustrations and photographs, Evolution is an accessible introduction to a fundamental process of life on Earth.
