CAN SOMETHING AS COMPLEX AND WONDROUS as the natural world be explained by a simple theory? The answer is yes, and now Evolution explains how in a way that makes it easy to understand.
Based on acclaimed articles from Junior Skeptic (Skeptic magazine’s science insert for kids) Evolution is a gorgeous hardcover with dust jacket, packed throughout with dazzling full-color art.
This spectacularly illustrated introduction to the theory of evolution takes us from Charles Darwin to modern-day science. Along the way, Evolution answers common questions (and clears up misunderstandings) that sometimes confuse people about the history of life on Earth.
Recommended for children ages 8–13
Written by Daniel Loxton; illustrated by Daniel Loxton with Jim W.W. Smith

The best overview of evolution for children of which I’m aware … Beautifully illustrated and elegantly written … my 6-yr-old kept stealing it and carrying it around the house to study. —Wired GeekDad
Explains the facts simply without distorting the science for the young reader.
This title is a ‘must’ for science classrooms and libraries alike.
An excellent resource for both students and teachers… This book complies with the ideas set forth about evolution by the National Science Education Standards and fills a gap in books about evolution for this age group.
—National Science Teachers Association
Loxton maintains a respectful tone indicative of an intent to enlighten rather than inflame … For parents or teachers of young adults, Loxton’s book provides a wonderful resource for addressing a complex and politically charged subject.

I think this book is absolutely terrific … I would’ve loved this book when I was a kid. It would have made me want to be a scientist.
