Darwin and Evolution for Kids: His Life and Ideas with 21 Activities (For Kids series)

Darwin and Evolution for Kids: His Life and Ideas with 21 Activities (For Kids series) - Kristan Lawson This may not look like the kind of book you can go ahead and read straight through -- especially if you're a grownup -- but this book has *heft*. Not only does it cover the history of the idea of evolution (which is far older than I ever suspected), it explains the concept itself using accessible language. But it doesn't oversimplify. If you're a lightweight like me, I strongly recommend reading this book before tackling Darwin himself.
