Tweet did an outstanding job working through what key parts of evolutionary theory should kids learn and how best they can understand it. Writing style is very fluid and engaging. He really researched it well, too. Very readable for young and enjoyable for adults. Illustrations are colorful and informative.

An excellent book to introduce a younger child to the Theory of Evolution. The great thing is, it also includes info for adults at the back of the book that will help to guide the learning.
