" Cute little picture book that takes a very basic look at evolution. In the last couple pages the author provides some more details on evolution and expands on the history of evolution.Very cute but simple illustrations. Good for the young scientist you know. " said.

" Guess what?! I used to be a fish, too!Recommended as a tie-in to science lesson, but not actually as a science book. Might be too confusing. (Says the gal who can also be quoted as "never underestimate the kids". " said.

" I really liked this quick, easy, and understandable explanation of evolution. I wouldn't necessarily read it in storytime, but I'd recommend it to parents who want to teach their preschoolers or kindergarteners about science. I'll also read it to mine when she's old enough to understand it. " said.

" Beautiful, simple and fun! Quietly subversive in its own way. However simple-looking this should be read with an intention to have a larger discussion about evolution in a more complex manner. We wouldn't want to accidentally reinforce the common misconception (that anti-evolution educators sometimes have, for example) that humans are just advanced monkeys, now would we? " said.

" With Seussical leanings this short picture book gives a child (and some adults) a basic understanding of evolution and how humans evolved from fish to the modern humans we are today. Loved the speculation about what we might be one day, could lead to some great discussions! Back matter available for a slightly more in depth look at the evolution timeline. Recommended. " said.

" Science ftw!!! I love how evolution is presented in this book as a logical progression. Pair this book with a non-fiction book about evolution (or even dinosaurs and their extinction) and it would an excellent resource to talk with kids about evolution. My favourite part is actually the discussion on the last page about the definitions of evolution and how the story was written. Brilliant way to educate parents and kids. " said.

" The theory of evolution may seem like a big topic to introduce to your toddlers but Tom Sullivan is here to the rescue. This delightful picture book takes a simple look at the life of one little guy who decided to move up in the world and onto land. Each page is simply illustrated as we follow him all the way to our modern world and modern man. Great book to help introduce science to your kids range of reading material. Used it for story time and had them enthralled. Definitely recommend. " said.

"A brief overview to evolution that summarizes humanity's development from fish to future potential possibilites. I'm not sure who are the intended readers for this picture book. Is this supposed to be a simple introduction to evolution? The concept of evolution is an abstract idea that is too complex for preschool & early elementary readers and this attempt may only confuse young readers; yet, the cartoonlike illustrations and sparse text are too vague and lack the scientific background needed by older readers. Science teachers may find this an interesting resource to begin a science unit." said.
