The Story of Life – A first book about evolution, Catherine Barr and Steve Williams

At first, nothing lived on Earth. It was a noisy, hot, scary place. Choking gas exploded from volcanoes and oceans of lava bubbled around the globe…

Then in the deep, dark ocean, something amazing happened.

This is an exciting and dramatic story about how life began and developed on Planet Earth, written especially for younger children.

Reviewer: The Kilminster Family

This book offers a great introduction into evolution for children. Each page takes you through the history of life on Earth. The pictures are very appealing and the text is well written using child friendly words. There are some tricky words but there is a glossary at the back of the book. When we had finished reading the book, we enjoyed discussing what we thought life on Earth might be like in the future!

A very colourful book which introduces children to words, with the aid of clear pictures. It covers everything from numbers and colours to animals and sports and much more. There is a little mouse to find on each page which children will love finding!

This book is ideal for children who love exploring outdoors. It is full of useful information about different things you might see outside, along with recipes to try and things to make and do. Each page is dedicated to different activities, like shelter building, fishing, beach adventures, animal tracking and more. The book contains messages to encourage children to stay safe and make sure they have adult supervision. The pictures are very good and engaging. A fab book for both girls and boys.
