Millions of plants and animals live on Earth, but why do some species survive while others go extinct? A young readers guide to evolution with full-colour cut-paper illustrations. There are millions of different kinds of plants and animals living on the earth, and millions more have lived here in the past. Where did they all come from? Why have some become extinct and others lived on? What lived on Earth before us, who is still with us, and what prompts evolutionary change? In this remarkable picture book, Steve Jenkins uses his signature eye-popping art to answer these questions and explore the fascinating history of life on earth and the awe-inspiring story of evolution. AGES: 7 to 10 AUTHOR: Steve Jenkins has written and illustrated many nonfiction picture books for young readers, including the Caldecott Honor-winning What Do You Do with a Tail Like This? His books have been called stunning, eye-popping, inventive, gorgeous, masterful, extraordinary, playful, irresistible, compelling, engaging, accessible, glorious, and informative.

Reviews for Life on Earth: The Story of Evolution

Jenkins presents a superb introduction to evolution for younger readers...[His] explainations of science concepts are comprehensive and comprehensible, making good use of his excellent illustrations. Horn Book, Starred Jenkins' trademark watercolor cut-paper collages, a large format, and the careful use of both an oversized and small font are definite lures into this handsome exploration of the basics of evolution. School Library Journal, Starred Clever, eye-catching, and extremely effective. Booklist, ALA, Starred Review Grabbing the audiences attention with stunning cut and torn paper collage illustrations, Jenkins illuminates another corner of the science world in this cogent introduction to evolution. Publishers Weekly, Starred Life on Earth taps into children's sense of wonder about the world, which is the great starting point for scientific exploration. The New York Times Book Review Intricate paper collages of animals and plants set against fields of clean white illustrate this condensed account of the earth's history. Riverbank Review Factual and fascinating, this one belongs in every library. Kirkus Reviews Jenkins and page combine two high-interest topics in a format that works at several levels due to the increasing complexity of the text. Book Links, ALA
