Fun books on evolution for little kids (age 4-6-ish)

Evolution for Kids!
The list author says: "It's sometimes hard to find evolution books for the littlest monkeys, but there are some truly great ones out there. These are my favorites.
(Books with reviews listed first.)"
Our Family Tree: An Evolution Story
Our Family Tree: An Evolution Story
"This is one of our all-time absolute favorites. The illustrations are gorgeous, the language is warm, simple, and accessible, and the story gently leads readers through the history of life using a family trip to the beach as backdrop. Any collection of kids’ books about evolution should start here. Truly excellent."
Dinosaurs?!
Dinosaurs?!
"Weirdly, dinosaur books almost never discuss evolution directly. But here's one! And for the littlest kids too, which I love. This book relates dinos to chickens and birds alive today, sure to entrance little ones ."
Evolution (Let's Read and Find Out Science Books)
Evolution (Let's Read and Find Out Science Books)
"A lovely, gentle and calm book that still holds up well twenty years later. The illustrations are lively, appealing, and filled with children making discoveries. The text is straightforward and still more or less accurate, but it does include some fairly complex vocabulary for this age. Since it’s pretty old, you can usually find it on the cheap. Recommended."
Stones & Bones: A Child's Guide to Evolution
Stones & Bones: A Child's Guide to Evolution
"Set in a lush library, two kids romp around with a Darwin-esque Grampa. The text, a rhyming poem, goes through the history of life on Earth with a focus on human evolution in the second half. The illustrations are sweet, gentle and filled with details to discover, but the poetry is a little clunky and technical. Recommended."
Big Bug Surprise
Big Bug Surprise
"This one is for every kid with a geeky obsession that isn’t appreciated by everyone. The heroine’s infatuation with bugs annoys her classmates, until they day they really need her expertise. While those around her panic, she keeps her cool, uses her knowledge, and saves the day. Hooray for passionate, observant, nerdy kids! Not about evolution exactly, but excellent."
Uno's Garden
Uno's Garden
"With delightful illustrations of funky animals and people, Base shows how exponential growth of human population cannot survive alongside the geometric growth of plants and animals. Yes, the ideas are that complex, and their presentation is that accessible, even to 4-year-olds. A terrific story that is easily related to evolutionary ideas. Truly excellent."
