One Beetle Too Many The Extraordinary Adventures of Charles DarwinToo Many PDF #202 A lively text and captivating images tell the story of the ever curious boy who grew up to make one of the most significant discoveries of our timeFrom the time Charles Darwin was a boy he was happiest when he was out alone collecting specimens especially beetles And despite his father's efforts to turn One Beetle ePUB #241 young Darwin Beetle Too Many The E I thoroughly enjoyed Lasky's picture book biography regarding Charles Darwin's life although the illustration style was not my favorite I enjoyed them but in some cases I didn't feel they really fit with the story in either feeling or depicting the described events I felt that the illustrations were suited for a younger picture book audience whereas the text in both style and length suggested something for the upper age range on picture books Still as for the story itself I feel Lasky did a good job of condensing Darwin's life into the brevity of a picture book without sacrificing style or substance While certainly not comprehensive it none the less covers his boyhood through his older years with focus primarily on his exploration on the Beagle Little details such as Darwin being seasick and having to eat only raisins or how he once tried to train earthworms make Darwin feel like a real interesting person not some dusty figure from the past What I perhaps appreciated most about this particular biography is how Lasky deftly handled the science vs religion aspect On the Beagle Captain Fitzroy provides the voice for the Christian perspective as he was devoted to both the Bible and to science though perhaps his temper made him seem a less than sympathetic individual at times and even Darwin's own wife worried that her husband was losing his faith in God While Darwin's disbelief in the Bible as absolute truth and in Jesus Christ as the Savior has continued to trouble Christians even to this day Darwin felt that his theories about evolution did not disprove God and that if species could change over time who else but God could make such marvelous things happen It seems this aspect of Darwin's character is often ignored by the overarching science vs God arguments and I am glad it is included here All in all this is a fine if incomplete portrait of a complex remarkably intelligent individual husband and father who became in his words A complete millionaire in odd and curious facts
