I used this as part of a unit study for my 7 yo. She, and I, really enjoyed it. I learned quite a bit as well and my child now has a deeper understanding of evolution than I did last year.

Finding science-based books that hold children's attention can be a struggle. Or at least my children would prefer watching Bill Nye, Cosmos, Walking with Dinosaurs, etc. over reading. I liked that this book presents the information as well as activities. Some are great as rainy day things to do vs. being stuck in front of video games.

Excellent resource. I could see this best being used around grade 5-6, the text portion could be appropriate for older kids and even adults would find it interesting and engaging.

My kids loved this book. Great, simple activities that really help deepen understanding of concepts.

This book sets a high standard. Some books for kids do a great job of informing adults. Loved it. Still do.

My daughter, age 10, really liked this book enough to have me read it as her bedtime story for a week. She didn't want to do the activities, just read it. It was well written though they format did make it repetitive which got old by the end, for me at least.

I loved this book. Even though I'm a grown up, I used it as a jumping off place to gain a basic grasp of evolution. It really worked for me. Highly recommended.

Excellent introduction to evolution for kids, including much of the subsequent discussion and controversies.

this book is for me! :)

amazingggtally understandable

I thought this book by Kristan Lawson was pretty good. I learned a lot an did a lot of fun activities too. I would recommend to anyone who is interested in science and evolution.
