Description
"Evolution is a ticklish topic.... For one thing, young children [readers 5 to 8] have little concept of time—a million years might be the span between birthdays. For another, the idea of slow, evolutionary change still seems somehow equal to a magician's trick. So, accomplishing a reasonable explanation of a scientific concept and its progress through millennia is worthy of note. [Lisa Westberg] Peters's simple text uses the 'we/us' format to place Homo sapiens in the 'family' of life at its very beginnings.... Through a simple progression, amply bolstered by [Lauren] Stringer's striking, large acrylics, she traces 'our' family tree from unicellular organisms through amphibians, therapsids, and early mammals to early primates, hominids, and our distinct 'humanness' today. Enriched by two pages of additional data and a colorful time line, the whole is rounded out by carefully written author and illustrator notes."—School Library Journal
