October Preschool/Primary Pick: One Beetle Too Many: The Extraordinary Adventures of Charles Darwin
This month's pick for the picture book set is Kathryn Lasky's One Beetle Too Many: the extraordinary adventures of Charles Darwin. This book, filled with charming illustrations, gives a much-simplified, but still extremely long and detailed, overview of Mr. Darwin's life from his youth as a messy little born naturalist to his old age, still messing around with bugs and barnacles. The book does not shy from controversy, even as it simplifies. It is an inspring story for the little naturalist in your life.
