A (history-buff) friend of mine recently said "I don't get why anyone would read fiction if you could learn by reading nonfiction, and it's even better." I thought, "That's how I feel about children's books!"
In Annabelle & Aiden (In The Story Of Life), a children’s book written in rhyme, Annabelle asks, “Why do we look the way that we do? With our hands and feet in neat sets of two? What made my eyes? And what made my nose? And the shape of my body, from my head to my toes?” A wise owl answers by describing the amazing story of Darwinian evolution, and what we learn from it: to treat each other with kindness, since we are all related as one big family.
I intend this to be the first in the Annabelle & Aiden series: a series of children’s books that explore the line where science and philosophy meet. While fairy tales widen the imagination, facts are as magical as fiction—and educational as well. Where did we come from? What happens when we die? What makes me, me? These types of questions have been kept from children to their detriment—until now. This series will introduce them in a safe and loving way.
“Fun poem on the story of life!” -Dr. Liz Freedman Fowler, paleontologist, Executive Director of St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm
"A very important children's book every child should have. A charming lesson on the origins of life that extends beyond biology, teaching children an appreciation for the world we live in and the creatures we share it with. This book will make your amoeba flagellate." -Chris Cornelison, Ph.D., microbiologist, Georgia State University
