Stones and Bones by Char Matejovsky

Described by BioScience as appealing to both the eyes and the ears of younger readers and by Midwest Book Review as the most witty, accurate, scientific, succinct, intriguing treatment of a summary of human and life evolution over 60 million years, Stones & Bones sketches the story of evolution in seventeen verses. Through words and illustrations readers will find answers to questions such as, when did the Age of Mammals begin and what is it called? When did the first horses appear on earth? The first whales? When did the earth begin to form? And many more. Includes a CD of the Stones & Bones Song and a bonus recording of The Song of the Meadowlark, recipient of an award for Outstanding Achievement in Songwriting (lyrics) from the Great American Song Contest in 2004. Performed by the Santa Rosa Children's Chorus.
