Older Than the Stars
This excellent book explores Big Bang cosmology, early solar system formation and development of life on earth. The title presents the emphasis of the book: all the organisms on earth today, even our own bodies, are made of elements present from the very, very, early beginnings of our universe. All ages will appreciate this lively trek over billions of years, and adult readers will appreciate the sing-songy rhythm of the text. The pages are filled with engaging rhymes and bright illustrations which will enchant younger readers and more detailed paragraphs for older or more interested children.
