Synopsis

Following in Darwin's Footsteps by Aileen O'Riordan, Pat Triggs

Eight key chapters cover the life of Charles Darwin, each designed to read aloud in 5 minutes for a primary school audience (5-11 year-olds). Illustrated with fun family activities and presented by the characters from The Great Plant Hunt (www.greatplanthunt.org), an RBG Kew and Wellcome Trust educational program. Themed topics range from Darwin's childhood capacity for observation and his exploration and discovery of new species on the Beagle voyage, to an accessible account of Darwin's biggest idea. Together these eight tales explain how and why Darwin became a scientist who changed the world.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
