Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“What came first? The chicken? The egg? Lots of stories begin with ‘once upon a time and so does this one; close to fourteen billion years ago, according to scientists. . .”

When was the Earth created and how? And the most pressing question of all — how did humans come to be? What Came First? is a funny but scientifically sound introduction to evolution. Learn about the Big Bang, where it all started, and read vivid descriptions of a melting pot full of microscopic organisms — the very beginnings of life — to the first oceanic life forms and, with the formation of the continents, the first land mammals, all the way through to the evolution of the plant, animal, and human life that surrounds us today.

Natalini expertly guides young readers to examine the science behind the creation of life, all the while nudging them forward to find the answers that lie behind existence. Complemented by an assortment of rich and colorful illustrations as well as detailed timelines and charts, What Came First? is a welcome resource for the child who is seeking his or her own explanations the origins or our world.
