Review quote

Help children to understand the process of evolution with this stunning fold-out book, one of the Big Picture Press' superb Welcome to the Museum series. It starts with the first single-cell organisms, 541 million years ago in the Pre-Cambrian era and ends with modern life forms in the Neocene and Quaternary eras. On the reverse there is information about developments in each period - it's good to see the book doesn't fall into the trap of having the timeline on front and back! It's perfect for classroom display use and will support the now compulsory teaching of evolution at KS2. Beautifully illustrated and full of detail, this really helps put evolution into context. It will stimulate children's interest and encourage them to investigate further. -- Sarah Brew * Parents in Touch * In my humble opinion the Welcome to the Museum series by Big Picture Press is one of the most exciting book series for young readers. With their large format, fascinating subject matter and artwork, illustrated with meticulous detail, these books hypnotise any reader in their path. They are as close to perfection as I think you can get.
This latest edition to the series is a graphic, fold out guide to evolution. The book starts with the first single-cell organisms and ends with modern life forms. * Magpie That *
