Another children’s science book

We need more of these, and here’s another: Great Adaptations: A Fantastical Collection of Science Poems. It contains short rhyming summaries of scientists’ work on adaptations, all nicely illustrated.

Here’s one from Sarah Hrdy’s work on empathy and cooperation.


Doesn’t that make you want to run out and buy it right now? How much would you pay? $5? $10? $25?

Well, you can’t. Instead, you have to go to this website and download it for free.

Writing the book was a labor of love, so I hope you love it too! Lastly, because our objective is to get as many people reading and learning about evolution, we’re offering the E-book for free.

Those wacky scientists. They know nothing of capitalism. Isn’t it great?

    Reminds me of this video (apologies but it starts with an ad) of a photographer’s encounter with a troop of gorillas. The younger ones stop to explore while an adult passively sits behind them keeping an eye on things. The value of empathy and cooperation in primate, and thus human, evolution is too often ignored, at least in the popular literature.
