By S. Green on April 11, 2014
Format: Paperback
Earth Story is written simply and elegantly, and each page contains gorgeous painted illustrations. It begins with the big bang and ends with "...the first living thing: a clever little squiggle. ...But that's another story."
A great way to introduce kids to the science of space and the Big Bang.
