Evolution for Young Minds: An Evolution and Natural Selection Guide for Children
By Flemming Bermann
Strategic Book Publishing
February 2012
50 pages

Evolution for Young Minds offers an introduction to a complex and controversial subject that is original and – dare I say – entertaining. From genes to evolution to natural selection, children learn to explore the nearest things in nature in order to understand the big picture. This book dispenses with boring textbook science and presents the history of the planet and the evolution of the animal world with the help of colorful photographs, illustrations, diagrams, even fun puzzles. Young minds can test their skills at simple gene-mapping and find out how elephants as a species are fooling the poachers.

Each chapter covers one topic on one page and is followed by a set of questions called, Dean and Lisa’s Learning Check. For teachers and parents who are looking for an interactive approach to natural science this book serves as a unit outline, complete with a glossary and two hands-on experiments, all of which is guaranteed to keep students fascinated. Evolution for Young Minds puts the fun in natural science.
