This beautifully illustrated story tells the true story of the Galapagos.The book is written in biographical style beginning with the birth of the island and discussing its aging, and all the life the island has supported in its cycles.

Another beautiful picture book by Jason Chin that combines beautiful illustrations with informational text about the natural world. He presents the evolution of distinct species from the Galapagos Islands in a fun, whimsical way.

very beautiful story, starting 5 million years ago, about the formation of the Galapagos Islands. It explains adaptations the animals have made over time as well as how volcanos form islands and then they eventually sink. The end of the book offers more information about Darwin, his discoveries and the science behind adaptations and island formation. ( )
