In a series of stunning panoramic illustrations and lively, engaging text, this book tells the story of life on Earth through key evolutionary periods, from life’s earliest origins to the first farmers. The amazing story of life’s evolution begins in vast oceans and swamp forests, and is shaken by dramatic extinctions caused by ice, violent volcanic eruptions, and meteor impacts. ‘Life Through Time’ explores geological time and the origins of species that still exist today in early fish, amphibians, birds, reptiles, and mammals. It takes readers through the years of dinosaurs and megafauna up to the appearance of our first human ancestors around six million years ago to the evolution of hunter-gathering Homo sapiens in the last ice age and the first civilisations. Perfect for children and parents to read together and discover the incredible story of life on our planet.
