Evolution is the process that created the terrible teeth of Tyrannosaurus rex and the complex human brain, clever enough to understand the workings of nature. Young readers will learn how a British naturalist named Charles Darwin studied nature and developed his now-famous concepts of natural selection and survival of the fittest. And how modern-day science has added to our understanding of the theory of evolution.

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.

won the 2010 Lane Anderson Award in the young reader category for a book published in the field of science and written by a Canadian...http://news.discovery.com/human/evolution/evolution-book-110916.htm....I recommend you also look at: The Magic of Reality : How We Know What's Really True by Richard Dawkins is a wonderful book for young people although the EPL catalogues it in the adult shelves as: 501 DAW

I didn't like the book Evolution: How We and All Living Things Came to Be as much as I liked some of the other books in this year's list. Although the pictures were amazingly illustrated, I didn't find this book very interesting. However, it was quite easy to understand. It was all about concepts of evolution, of course, and had a lot of information about evolutionary theory and answered some of MY questions about how even extremely complicated things could have evolved about time and common questions that are often misunderstood. Overall, like Catherine said, this book was not that interesting to read.

I thought it kept on repeating the same thing over and over again.
I mean, I got it the first time, I know what evolution is.
I thought they'd teach me something new, but I didn't really learn much.
I would NOT recommend this book.

Hmmm hard thought for this book. It wasn't interresting at all. it was about SCIENCE! Like i said not a big lover of science. its about odd animals and liveing things that was just just odd and weird. it really wasn't great. it was about how we involved to a stinky smelly APE AND GORILLA! who knew we envolved to a GORIILA! thats why i didn't like it MORE FACTS! i like fiction way better then non fiction. IF YOU LOVE SCIENCE READ THIS BOOK! AND TELL EVERYBODY WHAT YOU THOUGHT
