Charles Darwin first visited the Galápagos Islands almost 200 years ago, only to discover a land filled with plants and animals that could not be found anywhere else on earth. The illustration on this book are amazing. They show species found in the island and how they came to live there. It is a great way to explore unknown places that children would like to know about.

I picked this book out because of the cover, and my love for tortoises. This was actually a great book about evolution and biology. Yet another way to get kids interested. The illustrations are just great.

Well researched, clearly written text, great illustrations, important topic...This book has it all. I especially liked the format of the illustrations. The small boxes demonstrating the changes in the animals could not have explained evolution more perfectly. ( )
