Wednesdays with The Subversive Children's Book Club: Evolution Themes

Because far too many of our school children have to deal with ridiculous"science" lessons that actually try to undermine science, today's installment of the Subversive Children's Book Club deals with children's literature with evolution themes.  Enjoy!

Primary and Lower Elementary:

  •  One Beetle Too Many:  the extraordinary adventures of Charles Darwin by Kathryn Lasky
  • Our Family Tree:  An Evolution Story by Lisa Westberg Peters 
  • Little Changes by Tiffany Taylor

Upper Elementary and Teens: 

  • Monkey Town:  The Summer of The Scopes Trial by Ronald Kidd
  • The Legend of Calpurnia Tate by Jaqueline Kelly
  • Evolution, Me and Other Freaks of Nature by Robin Brande.

We also like The Universe Tells its Story Series (Born with a Bang, From Lava to Life, and Mammals Who Morph). I also have The Magic of Reality, which I bought when it first came out, but haven't read very much of it to the kids yet (we always want to read novels!).
