My six year old daughter really engaged with this book, and I learnt a little something too My daughter attends a Catholic school, and I wanted some kid friendly books to balance out her religious and scientific education, this is great I also recommend Older Than The Stars.

I bought this for my 5 year old daughter and it has been read to her quite a few times, the writing has a nice flow and does not in any way talk down to or patronise it s readers, but is concise, clear and quite humorous too, I ve enjoyed reading it and the pictures go nicely with the text I ve also caught my daughter reading it while I ve been out of the room I bought this book as a companion book to Neffy the Dinosaur and various volcano books. Currently halfway through Little one enjoying it Yes the language may be a bit advanced, but my boy is only 4 so forgive me for wanting a book I can read TO him as he looks at the pictures Also the concept of evolution as with all science does not contradict any personal belief system, so there is nothing in here that will compromise any faith teachings. My mums trying to brainwash my kids with religion I am on the offensive making sure I brainwash them first with Science After one of my 5 year old twins asked me if humans were around straight after the dinosaurs, I went looking on for some child friendly books about evolution, to help them understand.This is the book I ended up buying, as it seemed like it would give a very simple, but factual explanation of evolution And my boy s loved it It really is a great book, which my boys have been remembering tidbits from since reading, and relaying the info back to me So it s obviously serving its purpose very well The only downside is that it s not as basic as I had hoped, and it leaves a lot open to questioning Which is fine And I probably should have got a book a bit simpler again maybe I took a risk buying the book when there weren t any inside product photos.That being said, the boys did enjoy learning a bit , and I think they ll understand it a lot when they re a bit older.
