Laurence Pringle is a master of narrative nonfiction. In BILLIONS OF YEARS, AMAZING CHANGES: THE STORY OF EVOLUTION, illustrated by Steve Jenkins (Boyds Mills Press 2011), Pringle explains in clear and concise language all of the elements of evolution. He reviews the work of Darwin and Mendel and Crick and Watson among others and discusses how their discoveries and observations have all contributed to our understanding of how evolution works. Science teachers would do well to use this book to supplement (or even supplant) the chapter on evolution in the textbooks. <699>
