5 stars Review by: Mrs Stephen with comments from P6 pupils, 24 February 2009

'This book has been used with a P6 class studying Charles Darwin as part of the bicenteniary celebrations of his life. They found the layout of the book to be "Interesting" and "liked the way the text changed and you could see the main ideas." The high colour content and good use of graphics made the book "exciting to look at" for one pupil. Another pupil thought "the pictures were great - they really stood out."
The book appears to feed the children''s natural curiousity about the world around them, making good use of technical terminology. The glossary provides a useful reference point for definitions of these terms.
Although the content of the book covers some quite intricate and complex ideas, the children enjoyed the depth of information provided. One pupil commented that although there was "lots of information ... it was easy to find what you wanted." The class found the chapters "All in the Genes" and "Evolution in Action" particularly informative and enjoyable with one pupil commenting that she "loved the bits about how animals adapt" and another saying "Awesome stuff on dinosaurs!"
Overall, with its vivid and bold use of colour, varied page layout and informative text, this book is very readable making a complex concept accessible to children. Excellent resource for a primary school library!'
