The book does very good job when describing Charles Darwin, the man - who was the son of a physician and who, besides being methodical and curious, actually wanted to be a minister. The book also did a great job elaborating about the differences between "theory" and "Theory" throughout the book. This book also has a decent amount of illustrations which makes it a bit easier and more enjoyable to read.… (more)

Who Was Charles Darwin? by Deborah Hopkinson is a fantastic book that really gets in there and tells a lot of Charles' life growing up and his long travels.

Borrowed this book for the library.… (more)
