[Unpaid ad] Look at this stunningly beautiful new addition to our Little People, Big Dreams collection! Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara takes you and your little co-reader back to Charles Darwin’s lifetime.
We get to know about little Charles’s natural curiosity and how questioning things ran in the family. After his studies he takes us on board the HMS Beagle with him as he joins a scientific expedition to wonderful places such as Brazil and the Galápagos Islands. We learn how Darwin – after several years of research – discovered the process of ’natural selection‘, ended up publishing his book On the Origin of Species and became one of the most influential naturalists of all time. As usual, you can also find a facts and photo section at the back of book.
So far, this is one of most inspiring titles of the series and sparks joy on so many levels, not least to the uplifting message it sends and the brilliant illustrations by Mark Hoffmann. From the stunning cover, to the childhood scene where he reads with his father, to observing mockingbirds on the Galápagos Islands: this book is a must have for all kids!
It is not the strongest of the species that survives,– Charles Darwin
not the most intelligent that survives.
It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.
So looking at this global pandemic with its multitude of effects on all of us and the constant need to change and adapt to new situations, I have to say that this book, published by Francis Lincoln Children’s Books, comes at the right time for little readers.
The German edition is due to be published on January 26 this year, so you just need to be patient for a little while longer. Don’t forget to mark your calenders though, German readers!
