In the tradition of Black Dog's best-selling Child's Introduction books, which include The Story of the Orchestraand A Child's Introduction to the Night Sky, A Child's Introduction to Natural History introduces readers ages 8 to 12 to the fascinating wonders of our natural world.

Highlighting every kingdom of life--plants, bacteria, mammals, birds, amphibians, insects, rocks and minerals--the book is also full of charming and witty illustrations by Meredith Hamilton plus 30 photographs throughout. The book delves into topics like geology; prehistoric times, including fossils and dinosaurs; how animals move and fly; evolution; biomes; and more. Sidebars throughout offer biographies of naturalists like Charles Darwin, Mary Anning, Thomas Henry Huxley.

Also includes fun, hands-on projects for kids to do on their own or with adults and 5 origami patterns to create your own paper dinosaur, whale, penguin, and more. Beautifully illustrated and designed, this is an entertaining and educational look at our natural history.
