Our Family Tree: An Evolution Story Book Cover(2003) for ages 3 – 8 (secular). This book follows the earliest life forms along their evolutionary path to the current creatures that exist – including us humans. “All of us are part of an old, old family. The roots of our family tree reach back millions of years to the beginning of life on earth. Open this family album and embark on an amazing journey. You’ll meet some of our oldest relatives–from both the land and the sea–and discover what we inherited from each of them along the many steps of our wondrous past.” The book colorfully shows the development of life and our connectedness to all living things. A weakness is that it minimizes the uniqueness of humans by always using the term “we” when describing early living organisms well before the appearance of humans.
