Reviews for the Origin of Species: Young Readers Edition

Reviews have started to come in for my young-readers adaptation of Charles Darwin’s most important book, On the Origin of Species. So far, so fantastic!

Publishers Weekly says, “With valuable modifications and enhancements, Stefoff preserves the richness of Darwin’s content for contemporary young readers.” Read the full review here.

Booklist says, “The strength of this attractive volume is that it gives them direct access to
Darwin’s words on the topic of natural selection, along with informative updates and explanations.” (This review has not yet been published online.)

Kirkus praises the adaptation for being “so handsomely presented and so close to the source” and says, “Stefoff’s frequent glosses and boxed side essays unpack major concepts, add historical context, explain how later scientific discoveries modify or support Darwin’s broad picture, and even studiously point out where the author went wrong.” The full review is here.
