Brilliantly written and illustrated. The guides at the end are especially helpful. G and J and I had wonderful and insightful conversations while reading. The author presents evolution in a clear and concise manner that is easily relatable for children, but still factual and not at all "dumbed down." ( )

Grandmother Fish presents the idea of evolution in a manner that children can conceptualize. They can see the family tree and watch how the actions gradually progress to more human-like capabilities. Although evolution is not supported by all, this book gives examples of myths and incorrect assumptions at the back, and ways to describe evolution correctly to your child.

GRANDMOTHER FISH: A CHILD’S FISH BOOK OF EVOLUTION by Jonathan Tweet explores the concept of evolution using easy to understand examples.

The picture book introduces each branch on the tree of life with familiar examples and engages readers through active questioning. The consistent format, colorful illustrations, and predictable approach contribute to the book’s appeal.

The end notes include an evolutionary tree of life, science notes for parents, and ideas for explaining natural selection to children.

Librarians will find this well-written book to be a useful addition to the primary grade science curriculum. Involve students in exploring a branch of the evolutionary tree of life and create a mural in the library.

I have not tested this on a child in the target audience, but I expect that it would serve very well as a simplified introduction to some rather difficult science.

[T]he author and illustrator do a good job of simplifying evolution through words and pictures and using terminology that is kid-friendly
...
With its engaging text and illustrations, I’m sure this book will find its way into many public libraries and even school libraries.
