Little Changes: teaching evolution, one rhyme at a time

Today, I was catching up with some old podcasts. One was the Naked Genetics podcast from last January, which featured a book that I had never heard of but sounded rather cute. It’s called Little Changes and was written by Dr Tiffany Taylor from the University of Reading as a way to introduce evolution (by Natural Selection) to under 11s - and their teachers. I’ve not got it - I don’t have any under 11s - but the preview on Amazon looks fun and the illustrations look sweet too.

I won’t reproduce any sample text here as it is all copyrighted but you can “look inside” on Amazon if you are interested. Apart from someone who (ambitiously) got it for their three year old, the customer reviews are good too.
