Summary

Explores the evolutionary journey that humans have made from the first primitive species to modern day.

What makes us human? Where did we come from? How have humans evolved?

Step back in time to discover how a clever ape climbed down from the trees and changed the world like no other animal has done before. Explore the story of our origins and meet some of the key species in our history.

Book of the week

Fascinating look at human origins, well laid-out with informative text and detailed illustrations. Engaging enough for leisure and really useful for topics.
