Life on Earth: The Story of Evolution (2002)

Written and Illustrated by Steve Jenkins

Houghton Mifflin

I watched with great interest the recent debate between Bill Nye the Science Guy and Ken Hamm of Answers in Genesis, and it got me interested in learning more about evolution. I read a lot of contentious reviews of the debate, lots of passionate diatribes, so I thought it would be refreshing to visit the issue with the simplicity of a picture book.

I love Steve Jenkins' cut paper illustrations in all of his books, and this one is no exception. interestingI would instead read a picture book. He fashions more than one hundred different animals, including a spread of beetles, and offfers a cohesive narrative for their development on earth. It's a beautiful book, and nice to see - even on an Amazon review page - people can have civil discourse about a picture book made for children.
