    Edit: Now that I’ve actually read it, I see what you mean about a children’s book. Adorably cute, thanks for the link!

    @andrewryan at 8 – Somehow I didn’t see your comment, but we were thinking the same thing! Anyway, anything related to giant squids is worth double-posting!

    Where do I buy this in a dead tree format. I may not have great-grandchildren yet, but I have a passel of just-at-reading level children in the environment who could be cleverly inoculated. 5, um 6, um 8 copies? – More?

    BTW, anyone got a good recommendation for a science encyclopedia series for a 7-year old? We’ve chewed through a somewhat dated Time-Life series we bought second hand, but I think she’s ready for something a little more detailed.

    Amazon has a listing of
    ‘Secular Children’s Books About the Universe and Evolution’

    These are some of the titles. Looking through the available pages, they seem to be good.

    Our Family Tree: An Evolution Story by Lisa Westberg Peters

    The Tree of Life: The Wonders of Evolution by Ellen B. Jackson

    Life on Earth: The Story of Evolution by Steve Jenkins

    This one, mentioned above in the comments, I have. It is well written.
    Evolution: How We and All Living Things Came to Be by Daniel Loxton

    I just wanted to say thanks so much for mentioning my book! It was only released online just before Christmas and I’m looking to for as many readers as possible so please, share share share!
    The project was funded by ESEB (European Society for Evolutionary Biology) to be a FREE online teaching resource, so please print and share.

    Lovely book, should be in every primary school – it’s pitched just right, with attractive illustrations – now I just need to think who I can send the link to … d’oh, of course – I know someone who is a primary school headteacher! Perfect!

    no no, you can’t have this book in schools ! why, we need to feed children fables like Jesus, and Conservative Politics! 11!!
