Charles Darwin and the Beagle Adventure by A.J. Wood

Wood, A.J. and Clint Twist Charles Darwin and the Beagle Adventure, 30 p. Templar Books (Candlewick), 2009. $19.99. If your students like the “-ology” books, they will also enjoy this biographical work. There are so many details of Darwin’s voyage – I can’t imagine that this wouldn’t be useful at almost any grade level. The format is perfect for the younger crowd, but the detail is also engrossing for the olders. There are a few small parts that might get lost, but on the whole it is well worth the risk. EL, MS, HS – ADVISABLE. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
