It can sometimes be hard for readers to picture recognised names as youngsters but the Little People, Big series does this so well. In a recent publication, readers learn all about Charles Darwin from his days as a youngster in Shrewsbury, England. His curiosity and love for nature began at a young age but it was a trip in 1831 which changed his life.
During this trip Charles Darwin was able to relish all things nature in locations such as Brazil and the Galápagos Islands where he met many finches and began to question things.
The book continues in explaining the various theories that Charles Darwin put forward including the controversial idea of one species changing into another. However, it’s child friendly explanations and engaging illustrations make it an accessible read for young readers.
Charles Darwin had a dream which took many years of research but eventually twenty years later it all came together in his book On the Origin of Species.
This is a brilliant, informative read written by Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara and illustrated by Mark Hoffman and published by Frances Lincoln. A wonderful book for budding scientists, for curious readers, for critical thinkers young and older.
The book is out now.
