    1. I wish I d known about this book during secondary school this book would have engaged even into learning evolution, particularly because you get to learn about Charles Darwin s early life This book is based on the life of Charles Darwin and goes on to discuss what he discovered about evolution This book would be a great book to read in year 6 to introduce children to the concept of evolution, to hook them into the topic or to help them to consolidate what they have learned.


    2. 1 What Mr Darwin Saw is a biography of Charles Darwin s life and his discoveries of evolution It begins when Darwin is a boy, who is interested in dogs, shooting, and rat catching His father was displeased and pressured Darwin to grow up to be a professional He attended Edinburg University for a short time to learn as a physician, but Darwin could not handle the goriness of medical procedures Then his father told him to study as a clergyman at Cambridge but that didn t work well either One of hi [...]


    3. I enjoyed this book as an adult However I feel only a very small group of children would like it It has complex vocabulary but is a picture book Most kids who could understand it would probably already be past picture books.



    4. A great book to look at the life of Charles Darwin when studying evolution It is an interesting read and the illustrations are fabulous I have only given it 3 stars because it is not the sort of book that I would read if I were not teaching Darwin As an educational book for year 6, I would give it 5 stars.


    5. Fabulous introduction to the life and work of an influential scientist As a teacher, I can see this book offers a good balance of facts, narrative, and engaging pictures for children as they learn about how life is shaped on our planet The text is written using journal entries and captions to match illustrations, making the book accessible and interesting to young ones.I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars because the authors don t give a clear distinction between modern apes and the common ancestor [...]


    6. These are tough books really like the illustrations and like the text, however these kind of books are a tough sell in the library I often recommend them to patrons as a good feel for the homework assignment biography, sometimes that gets them out and aboutbut mostly these sort of books don t move even though I find them and this one quite appealing On a tight budget, not a necessary purchase.


    7. Our Year 6 topic this term is Survival We are studying Darwin and his theory of evolution and I needed a book that I could use with the children This is written as Darwin s diary, but has beautiful illustrations and little fact boxes on each page that tell you of the information I can t wait to share this with my kids and use it as a stimulus for writing biographies.


    8. Enjoyable as a read aloud for primary and fun for children to reread looking at pictures and speech bubbles in detail Lots of great details about Darwin s travels on the HMS Beagle and an introduction to his origin of species.


    9. Perfect for all those budding naturalists and environmental scientists, or indeed any child with a curiosity about the world.
