Many children's stories and books have addressed the idea of biblical creation, but the number of works written to acquaint youngsters with the extraordinary and continuing process of natural evolution has been few.
The Tree of Life shares the excitement and the beauty of evolution in an easy-to-read and fun manner. From the ocean's microscopic life to amphibians, reptiles, dinosaurs, insects, birds, animals, and the first humans, author Ellen Jackson celebrates the marvels of evolution in a way that encourages young children to appreciate its significance.
The lavish illustrations by Judeanne Winter Wiley capture the wonders of evolution, from its first "beginning to be" forms to species that characterize the world as we know it.
