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 Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

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

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in 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
