9780064450867: Evolution (Let's Read and Find Out Science Books)

Part of a series which is intended to encourage children to think scientifically about everyday phenomenon they may often have wondered about, this book is an easy introduction to evolution. It shows how scientists have learned to "read" the story of life told by the fossils.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 Four billion years is not a concept that the human mind can easily grasp. Yet this is the very time span that encompasses the development of life on earth. Cole has once again succeeded in taking a complex subject and making it comprehensible to beginning readers. She begins with a brief explanation of how fossil discoveries in the 18th and 19th Centuries led to the realization that our planet was much older than had been previously imagined. Through a careful progression, aided immensely by Aliki's colorful illustrations, Cole unfolds the amazing story of the development of life from the simple to the more complex. The carefully-worded text makes it clear that science has many gaps to fill in its understanding of this progression. This is a book that should spark further interest in evolution and related subjects. David N. Pauli, Northern Waters Library Service, Ashland, Wis.

From Publishers Weekly:

In another superior entry in the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out science series, two well-respected creators of children's books are paired in a comprehensible and interesting introduction to a difficult theory. Cole's exposition begins with a farmer finding a rock that looks like a bone and a child finding a seashell-shaped stone. "Are they accidents? . . . Could these rocks be the remains of real plants and animals?" With evidence found in rock layers or strata, she describes how one-celled organisms evolved into more complex plants, animals and human beings. Aliki's colorful pencil drawings and charts make the clear narrative even more accessible to youngsters. Ages 5-9.
