What a charming book The illustrations by Mary Azarian are beautiful, the prose is simple and clear, and I LOVED the snippets from original sources Darwin s diaries, notes, letters, books It had so many interesting details about his childhood, his love of experimenting and collecting, his thought processes, his theories that he kept secret, his critics, his friends and family I loved that it shared his view that he saw the universe as too amazing not to have been created by a God, and that and peoplehave found that their religious beliefs and Darwin s discoveries can exist side by side It makes me want to read The Origin of the Species.
Decent but rather dull picture book biography of Darwin And I m quite interested in Darwin so if it didn t hold my interest I can t imagine it would do much for a small child On the other hand, I m mainly interested in his ideas and their ramifications, not his life, so maybe this would appeal to someone else I still think it would seem kind of dead, though I didn t get a lot of sense of his personality or how he formulated his ideas And the illustrations, although it a style I like sort of pseudo woodcut were very static Why so many images of Darwin standing still talking to other men Those didn t really add anything.
