Good for 5th grade on up to read alone
Good read aloud to 1st grade on up
This is part three in The Universe Series which tells how our universe was formed.
This is an excellent series. In this installment we learn about the development of creatures on the Earth. This tells a story and, at the end, there is a section explaining the science (this part is definitely for the older kids).
It is all well done, but it is a little heavy handed with how we are to blame for what might be the biggest extinction event. I just didn’t like the artwork as much as the other two books.
All in all, a great way to explain the development of the universe to children.
