Written by Daniel Loxton; illustrated by Daniel Loxton with Jim W.W. Smith
CAN SOMETHING AS COMPLEX AND WONDROUS as the natural world be explained by a simple theory? The answer is yes, and Evolution: How We And All Living Things Came to Be explains how in a way that makes it easy to understand.
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.

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.
