The Story of Life: A First Book About Evolution

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Written in consultation with the Natural History Museum, this is a lively and accessible introduction to evolution for primary-aged children. Beginning 4.5 billion years ago it charts the growth of our planet to the present day, from the emergence of the first cell, the appearance - and extinction - of dinosaurs, to the eventual development of humankind from early African apes.

Child-like, full-page illustrations are interspersed with simple yet informative facts and it also includes a useful time-line and glossary. Teachers' notes and suggestions for further reading are provided on the publisher's website. Offering straightforward explanations as to how the earth, plants and animals evolved, this is an ideal starting point to promote scientific discussion and ignite the interest of young enquiring minds.
