The book itself has fairly short sentences and does for the most part only present a vague introduction to the subject of evolution. It is by no means the only thing a child should learn on the subject.
It tells about how "we" have changed a lot over a long period of time (millions of years in the third pair of pages).
It's fairly basic and describes what each level of our evolution added to make what we are now as humans.
That's almost the entirety of the book.
The last few pages go into depth. I know that those pages will be a little too much for my 5-year old, but it's great to use over time with this book.
Those last pages explain in detail what is meant in the book when it talks about what we inherited from these distant ancestors.
They also give us a timeline to show it all to scale.
Generally those last pages are probably something you might want to go into when the concept is a little bit more familiar, but having them around is a great thing nonetheless.
