This book was a serendipitous find! My toddler loves fish and I randomly pulled a few books off the shelf and was pleased to find that it was a whimsical, child friendly book on evolution.

Evolution, intelligent design, and natural selection. All conveyed in a simple, cheery picture book. This book would be a great read aloud for preschoolers.
