Reaping the Rewards: 'Evolutionary Tales'

EvolutionaryTales-CoverIn “Reaping the Rewards,” we take a look at a crowdfunded project in its final form. Today’s project is Evolutionary Tales, a beautifully illustrated book for kids about evolution.

EvolutionaryTales-EvolutionI originally wrote about the Evolutionary Tales Kickstarter a few months ago, and Matt Cubberly’s book quickly met and surpassed its goal by a ton! The need and desire for great books about evolution for parents and kids is clear.

EvolutionaryTales-ArtEvolutionary Tales is now available on Amazon, and the final book is everything I’d hoped for when I saw the sample pages back in July. The book is a beautiful, matte finished, large-sized (9 inches by 8 inches) book, that really gives the artwork the space it deserves. May Villani’s paintings almost look like photos!

EvolutionaryTales-TextEach of the ten animals is given a full-page story of its evolved special traits. They are rhyming and full of great info for inquiring young minds.

I highly recommend Evolutionary Tales to all parents who want to ensure their children have a strong understanding of the science of evolution. It’s a perfect complement to Grandmother Fish (which you already have or ordered, right?)
