 One Beetle Too Many: The Extraordinary Adventures of Charles Darwin by Kathryn Lasky, Illustrated by Matthew Trueman [***]

While I guess not technically a picture book but more of an early chapter book, the rich and lush illustrations (sometimes using actual plants) and short chapters will make this a great aloud. It also helps that the subject is very fascinating as well. I’ll have to look out for more Candlewick Biographies books.

    The cover illustration is fantastic. I’m guessing the rest of the book is that good? I hadn’t heard of this book until you spotlighted it, thanks!

    This is one I would definitely check out Earl. I just reserved Jenkins’ evolution book from the lirbary for my 12 year old girl, this would be a great companion book. 🙂
