Amazing Evolution explores the incredible ways that evolution works, starting with the beginnings of life 3.5 billion years ago, all the way up to the walking, talking super apes that can speak to others on the opposite side of the world and even walk on the moon-human beings. Learn what makes a fish a fish, a bird a bird, and what makes some superstar creatures so special. Filled with fascinating facts, clever connections, and engaging explanations, Amazing Evolution will keep children enthralled for hours.
