About this book

Where did the first cells come from? How did birds first take flight? If we evolved from monkeys, why do monkeys still exist? 3.8 billion years ago, single celled organisms formed in scolding hot-water vents in the sea. Now the earth is teaming with life, from birds soaring through the skies to our own species (homo sapiens) living in constructed cities. How did this happen?

Join us on an extraordinary journey through the history of life in this beautifully illustrated and highly accessible book. Explore one of the most incredible ideas in modern science ... how natural selection has given rise to the mind-boggling diversity of life on Earth today.

Broken down into easy-to-understand sections, with fact boxes, a glossary of terms and an illustrated timeline, The Story of Life is a perfect guide for children who are first learning about evolution. Underpinned with rigorous scientific accuracy, it offers fascinating information about all their favourite animals (sharks, dinosaurs, elephants) and even peers into the future of evolution on earth. This book supports the key stage 2 (KS2) curriculum and is great for home learning. Ideal for children aged 8+.
