Where are the Galapagos Islands? by Megan Stine - ESSENTIAL

Stine, Megan  Where are the Galapagos Islands? 108 pgs.  CHAPTER BOOK  Grosset and Dunlap, 2017.  $9.00  Content: G.  

This book includes an explanation of where the Galapagos Islands are, how they were formed and when they were discovered.  The history of the island and the connection to Charles Darwin are also covered.  The unique wildlife and the conservation efforts are explained and are up-to-date.  

This book is well organized and has fascinating facts about evolution and the amazing animals found there.  There are black and white illustrations that help tell the story and show the wildlife.  At the end of the book there is a timeline for the Galapagos Islands next to a world timeline that is a good overview of the major events explained in the book.  My elementary age boys love this nonfiction series and this is a great addition.
