On The Origin of Species Kindle Edition
The first ever picture-book retelling of Charles Darwin's On The Origin of Species.
'A long, long time ago, before humans even existed, the living world looked very different from how it looks today.'
For most of human history, people believed that everything in the world was created at once. But scientists started to challenge that idea and in 1859 Charles Darwin, a naturalist and biologist, wrote a famous book called On the Origin of Species that revolutionised the way that we have understood evolution ever since.
Now molecular biologist and illustrator Sabina Radeva has recreated Darwin's most famous work as a beautifully illustrated book for children and adults alike. The stunning pictures bring the theory of evolution to life for young readers, and anyone who wants to learn about evolution.
Pulling together Darwin's observations from his travels around the world and his ground-breaking explanation of how species form, develop, and change over hundreds of thousands of years, On The Origin of Species is as relevant and important now as it ever was.
A very important project, most beautifully realised. Sabina Radeva's thoughtful text and gorgeous pictures together tell the story of On The Origin of Species, and of Evolution itself, with clarity, humour and great charm. - Emma Darwin

Evolution explained, in this strikingly accessible picture book...perfect for a younger audience ― Picture Book Blogger
Sabina Radeva's book is a wonderful introduction to Charles Darwin's ideas. It will appeal to children, but also, by its deft handling of a number of common misconceptions, may well surprise many adults. She has not shied away from either historical language or scientific ideas and handles both with great charm and without oversimplification. -- Alison M. Pearn, Associate Director ― Darwin Correspondence Project --This text refers to the paperback edition.

I am 42 years old and have a degree in veterinary medicine and I found this book fascinating and learnt a lot that I did not know, my 8 year old daughter feels the same way about it, reading it to herself in bed this week.
I thought it was important that in this mad world we live in, that a child should grow up knowing about how we all came about and the wonder of the world around us. This knowledge is under threat from people who want to turn back our understanding and narrow our minds.
This book is beautifully illustrated and explains so many parts of Darwin’s theory in ways that even this non-scientific adult can understand.
The book is probably about suitable for an 8 year old, but I gave it to a 7 year old who’s father is a biologist and he is able to take him through the book and explain things to the boy.
In my view you can’t start young enough teaching a child the important aspects of the world around us and how we all came about.
Lovely book, well worth buying for an inquisitive child.
