  1. This book did an excellent job of explaining evolution for children but without dumbing down the subject I especially love the timeline end, where he shows the history of the Earth as if it happened in a day This is a great way to explain the long history of the planet, and while he s not the first person to do it, I m glad he included it in this book.I also love the illustrations, done in collage paper cut outs It gives a lot of depth and visual interest to the book, and it s a lot of fun to ju [...]


  2. Life on Urf I grabbed this one used because I thought Paul might like the animal pictures, but he will listen to a surprising amount of the text as well This book was to blame for the period when he went around randomly announcing microscopic bacteria



  3. I got this book for my 8 year old daughter, but I too found it equally interesting My daughter also enjoyed reading the book.


  4. Jenkins text contains striking, colourful fabric illustrations against a stark, white background The text is straightforward and is neither above children s comprehension nor does it condescend to them This resource asks the important questions, such as Why have some animals died out while others have lived on The evolution of plants and animals is explained clearly, with just enough detail for young readers Life on Earth also includes an introduction to Charles Darwin, his theory of evolution, [...]


  5. Life on Earth is an incredibly dull information book for children If I were to give them a textbook, this would be one of them It is clever in how it presents the information to students, and the pictures are accurate, even if they aren t real images I think this book would be better presented with another book I would pick a book on Darwin, or another evolutionary book of sorts assuming I was talking about content If I was looking at pictures, I might use a What do you see book I think one of t [...]


  6. This book is a great introduction to the topic of evolution, especially for younger students who will revisit this concept most likely either in high school or college However, because it deals with evolution there may be some parental issues because of the controversy that has surrounded this topic in the past, especially in the classroom I really loved the page where Jenkins lays out a timeline that represents one single day and compacts earth s entire history up until present day on it This a [...]


  7. It s pretty brave of Steve Jenkins and his publishers to tackle a book on evolution for children Although the book won t be to everyone s particular taste, the explanations of natural selection, variation, and mutations that are harmful and helpful are quite accessible to young readers and would be useful even in classrooms with older children The inclusion of a timeline and simple bits of information about when certain creatures roamed the earth will help readers gain perspective on the Earth s [...]


  8. I loved the information in this book about evolution It was very straight forward with the basics and a great introduction to a topic The artwork was very nice, but I didn t feel like it was appropriate for the book The artwork was collage, and very beautiful, but it didn t seem to fit with a scientific themed book It seems like it would have been accurate to use computer generated photographs Or maybe they used the collage because we don t really know what some of those things really looked li [...]


  9. Illustrated timeline from first life on Earth to now Explains adaptations, natural selection, mutations, variations, development of new species, and extinction Great timeline in the back shows what the history of life on Earth would look like in a 24 hour day.6th Grade New Mexico Science Standards Strand II Standard II 5 8 Benchmark I 2Strand II Standard II 5 8 Benchmark I 3Strand II Standard II 5 8 Benchmark II 1Strand II Standard II 5 8 Benchmark II 2 Available at Albuquerque Bernalillo County [...]


  10. The illustrations in this book were very unique They used cut up pieces of paper for the plants and animals This book was fairly comprehensive It discusses the theory of evolution starting with the beginning of life all the way through to the present day There is a section that also discusses Darwin, his life, and scientific contributions I would recommend this book for children 6 and up, especially those that have an interest in science.


  11. Jenkins provides an excellent overview of evolution and the development of life on earth, complete with his always awesome cut paper collage illustrations He includes information on the beginning of life on earth, the various animals that appeared over the past 4.5 billion years, the theory of evolution including how Darwin and others developed it , and variation and mutation This would be a great place for elementary school children to start learning about evolution.


  12. While I don t necessarily agree with some of the speculation or some of the numbers in this book, this is a great introduction for kids to the idea of evolution I like how it presents a clear picture of natural selection and variation and mutation The illustrations in this book are on the better end of Jenkins abilities.


  13. This is a perfectly adequate book, compared to picture book nonfiction as a whole, but it s not quite up to Steve Jenkins s usual standard Normally, my first reaction to a Steve Jenkins science book is to want everyone I know to read it This one is fine, but it s not amazing You can tell it came out fairly early in the author s career.


  14. Author Steven Jenkins explores the fascinating history behind the life on earth, ranging from plants and animals to everything in between Illustrations are cleverly presented in a way that are child like in fashion but not so child like older students would not be intrigued Animals that may be potentially frightening by becoming less scary through the unique illustrations.Ill paint, ink


  15. I LOVE THIS BOOK i used it in a 7th grade science class when we were discussing evolution The book explains very elegantly the theory of evolution without swaying very religiously, or too scientifically All the kids loved the illustrations, and it clarified some key concepts for them A


  16. Like the art in this one Sort of picture of paper cutouts Started as simple picture book story and later became book for older kids about evolution Touches on Darwin and the Galapagos Easy to understand Fun pictures.


  17. Lovely animal illustrations and good information the story telling could be engaging While the layout of the book seems like it would appeal to a pre schooler, the text is a bit difficult.


  18. A short, concise history of the evolution of living things that inhabit the Earth Theories and facts are also included which highlight some work by Charles Darwin and his theory about survival of the fittest and evolution Includes a timeline which is represented by a 24 hour day.


  19. Read it with Peter Sis s Darwin and Animals Darwin saw by Sandra Markle for a through young person s look at evolution and the great Darwin.


  20. An EXCELLENT primer for kids about the principles of evolution The principles are explained simply and illustrated in an interesting way to catch their interest.


  21. I m a big fan of Steve Jenkins work and this is a timely read, as we re watching Neil deGrasse Tyson s Cosmos.
