This comes from Charlie’s Playhouse, a group of like-minded folks (they all see the importance of evolution education) who have put out some products for kids about evolution. See their website here, and their blog here. The list of books, “Children’s Books about Evolution and Charles Darwin: An Annotated Bibliography in Honor of Darwin’s 200th Birthday,” is available as a PDF here. If you have kids (like me – I have several on the list already) then do check this list out. They’ve included many forthcoming titles, as well as some older ones. Their criteria for the books:
Here’s how we chose them. Books had to be targeted to ages fifteen or under and squarely focused on evolution or Darwin. Fictionalized accounts were welcome. We excluded books about dinosaurs because they are just too numerous and usually don’t even bear on evolution. We excluded books on creationism or intelligent design for the same reason. Within these constraints, we hope to present a truly comprehensive list, including older books. If you know of a book that we’ve overlooked, please let us know.
I will have to look through my books and see if I have any that are not listed!
