Review by fatlamb
Book was difficult for me to read, not due to any religious beliefs or creation beliefs or evolution beliefs, but no where in the book did it mention anything about the author. Who is Kristan Lawson, i wanted to know if this author was/is capable of writing a book on Darwin. Never did I question the author of works until, Part E "Is the author qualified to write about this topic"...I am going to take a closer look at the author when evaluating materials. The book itself had great activities, easy to follow, fun, engaging and informative and hands on. The activities by itself would be a great book but the story of Darwin is a bit questionable. The book itself is broken into two parts, part one Darwin and his life, and second part is about evolution and Darwin's theory. This book made me question more than it gave me answers. Never been interested in Darwin's life but I think I may have found some holiday break reading. Seems like a very interesting, brilliant, tormented individual. A great book due to the activities but I think there is or I would hope there are better books for children that discuss Darwin and his theories.Ages 9 and up.
