The Story of a Life A first book about evolution.jpegThe Story of a Life: A first book about evolution by Catherine Bart and Steve Williams, and illustrated by Amy Husband

Hands down THE best book we’ve read in ages!! Wilber’s thirst for knowledge is insatiable right now and this book has been an absolute winner! Thanks you Kiama Library for letting it come home with us.

The Story of a Life is such a great entry level exploration into evolution and how our world came to be. It has great illustrations and easy to digest yet factually rich text along the way. Wilber’s favourite page was about earth’s first life forms … which happen to be 1.7 billion year old lumpy, misshapen blobs … much like my homemade shortbread biscuits! So we promptly decorated those to look the same as our ancestors and then ate them! Educational and delicious!!
