Publisher's Summary

Learn about the theory of Evolution with iMindsJNR audio learning series for younger minds.
Evolution is a theory which explains how life on Earth developed. At its heart, it proposes that all species, including human beings, are formed by way of a gradual process of mutation from other species. According to this theory, humans are related to gorillas and reptiles because they share common ancestors. They are like distant cousins with the same grandparents. The important difference is that millions of generations separate them! Amazingly, evolutionary theory even suggests that we share a common ancestor with all organisms on earth.

Audible Editor Reviews

In warm, upbeat tones that will appeal to kids, performer Leah Vandenburg explains the theory of evolution and the clash between religion and science that so often surrounds its discussion. Listeners learn about the work of scientist Charles Darwin, the process of natural selection, the importance of fossils, and how the material traces of evolution are studied today. This is a nice choice for children interested in learning more about our origins, or parents who hope to pique such curiosity.
