What Mr. Darwin Saw by Mick Manning

Manning, Mick and Brita Granstrom What Mr. Darwin Saw. Frances Lincoln, 2009. $17.95. PICTURE BOOK. In the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin, we are overloaded with books that want to teach us about his life. This one has short vignettes, heavily focused on his voyage on the Beagle. There is too much here for a teacher to read in one sitting – and I have no idea if Darwin is even covered in elementary school at all. This almost feels like too much book for a science classroom, but not enough for a student doing research. MS - OPTIONAL. Cindy, Library-Teacher
