To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This book is beautifully illustrated and a perfectly scaled back presentation of Darwin's theory. We used it in a homschool unit study with my 6 and 8 year old but I can see going back to this year after year.
Love this book! My 8 year old was intrigued, a bit advanced for the 5 year old but he liked the pictures and I think a few readings through and he’ll grasp the concepts. Beautiful illustrations. The direct quotes from Darwin are difficult for sure but I like the authenticity they lend.
