9781616144722: Bang!: How We Came to Be

"Bang! And that was it, the beginning of everything."

So begins this beautifully illustrated, panoramic story of evolution. Author and illustrator Michael Rubino conveys not only the facts but also the excitement of the scientific explanation of our world, from the origin of the universe in the big bang to the present reality of our planet, teeming with life but threatened by overpopulation and pollution.

Parents looking for an easy-to-understand guide to the scientific worldview for their children will find the perfect source here. The formation of stars and galaxies; the origin of our solar system and planet Earth; the epochal march of life from single-celled organisms through sponges, worms, insects, fish, dinosaurs, birds, and early mammals; and the evolution of the first humans from their simian cousins—it’s all here.

This book is an eloquent blend of art and science that tells the most important story so far known.

About the Author:

Michael Rubino is a Los Angeles–based artist who paints symbolic, figurative works, portraits, and landscapes in oil on canvas.

Review:

"Michael Rubino tells the true story - which means the scientific story - illustrated with his captivating paintings. Children will be fascinated by this book, and they'll use it to educate their parents."--Richard Dawkins

"The illustrations in Michael Rubino’s Bang! How We Came to Be are lively, breathtaking, flowing, thought provoking, colorful, and sharp... This wonderful book would be a life-affirming gift for any child."
Cameron M. Smith, PhD, Author of The Top Ten Myths about Evolution and The Fact of Evolution

"Brilliant oil-on-canvas renderings greet readers at every turn of the page. From spinning galaxies to intricate details in a variety of monkeys, Michael Rubino’s artwork complements the narrative."--Judy Kraus - Science Teacher - National Science Teachers Association

"...explaining just that time element to children might be challenging in the hands of a lesser writer or artist. Mr Rubino, however, is clearly up to the challenge. He takes the reader on a fascinating journey."--Renee Hand - New York Journal of Books

"...may be the most straight-forward, comprehensible explanation for children of how life evolved from single celled protozoa to humans currently in print." --Dr, William Harwood - Midwest Book Review
