Discover the origins of life on earth from the first bacteria through the age of giant dinosaurs to the coming of humans

This book gives a great overview of the evolution of life, beginning with single-celled organisms, all the way through modern humans. It covers each of the major stages of evolution in a two-page spread, with some general text, along with several photos of fossils or illustrations of specific organisms in that category. I found it a very good introduction into this subject, and the information was at an appropriate level for my (fairly knowledgeable) 8-year-old. I’d still consider it aimed at children, but the information is basic without being dumbed-down. An excellent book. ( )
