The extraordinary adventures of Charles Darwin
  jhawn | Jul 31, 2017 |
The blurb is unfortunate when it claims Darwin made one of the most significant discoveries...." ?What he did was do a lot of field research and a lot of working out of one of the most significant theories.... ?áScience is hard work. ?áMuch more satisfying but less instantly gratifying than 'making a discovery.' ?áFortunately the text itself is more accurate

I love Lasky's dedication: "In celebration of children, whose boundless curiosity gives them a right to know their history on Earth."

This is a bit long. ?áIt's not for tots. ?áOtoh, it's ideal for schoolchildren who have to write a research paper. ?áVery interesting, with lively & appealing artwork, and a bibliography.

Thank you Kathryn Lasky, again, for yet another creatively educational and fun book." ( )

This is a book that I've been intending to read for quite a while and just haven't gotten around to. Now that I have though, I am pleased to share that I really enjoyed it. It was well written, using a couple of different literary devices that I'd like to revisit in the future including excellent use of items in a series. I think I counted that one three different times in here.
Also, it was a great biography on Darwin and filled in some details that make him, if nothing else, a more colorful, vibrant man. I would love to share it with children though I think that the length would prevent it from being a simple read-aloud. Even though it's got all the making of a good boy book with its blood and grossness in all the right places, I can't picture an elementary age child persevering through it without some ulterior motive like a school assignment to push them through.
I enjoyed it though. It was a well done biography. ( )

Since I will be teaching high school, I doubt that I would incorporate this book into any of my lessons, although the history of Charles Darwin is important in biology. The illustrations are designed for 7-12 year old, but much of the text (in my opinion), is for a more advanced reader than the age suggested. My son, who is 10, loves science and the natural environment, was very interested in the book when I showed it too him, but lost interest when it got to be too long for him. The organization was fine and simple with the sequential events taking place during Charles' life in correct order, as far as I know. The author was inaccurate when he summed up Charles' boat journey, but still got the sequence of events correct. The illustrations were colorful and detailed. I do not believe that Chrales Darwin believed in a "Creator," as the book suggests. ( )

Retelling: Charles Darwin grew up loving and experimenting with science. He did not, however, do very well in school. His father decided the best profession for him would be a Clergyman. His path changed when a friend of his invited him to explore the world on a ship called the Beagle. It was on this journey that Darwin discovered clues that raised questions in his mind about the current understanding that animals were always the same. He began to see signs that life changed to suit its environment and found sea shell fossils at the top of cliffs indicating that either the sea was higher or the mountain had started in the sea. His experience in an earthquake made him favor the latter explanation.

Thoughts and Feelings: There are some marvelous questions in this book, questions that Darwin might have asked. Mathew Trueman's illustrations were spectacular. I wonder how he makes all of his people look so friendly and welcoming. They are absolutely delightful.
