and finally, to human beings. Each living organism is introduced in the form of a poem first: some are free verse; others are riddled with rhyme; while several actually take shape in the form of concrete poems.

Newbery Honor-winning poet Joyce Sidman presents another unusual blend of fine poetry and fascinating science illustrated in exquisite hand-colored linocuts by Caldecott Honor artist Beckie Prange. Ubiquitous (yoo-bik-wi-tuhs): Something that is (or seems to be) everywhere at the same time. Why is the beetle, born 265 million years ago, still with us today?

A friend who is a research librarian shared this with me and I ordered it for myself within 24 hours.

I am a teacher and love all the subjects, but this book highlighted two of my favorites, science and poetry. Too many poetry books choose an interesting topic, but the poetry is lame. Or it has nice poetry: wonderful imagery, meter, rhyme, etc. , but the science is not very enlightening or exciting (or even correct sometimes). This book has it all! Even the illustration inside the cover engages the visual thinker in the vastness of time over which life has evolved. Someone observed that it looks like a fingerprint!

In fact, the art deserves its own recognition. Its simplicity and true but vibrant colors are the frosting on the cake - but it's all nutritious! Every viewing reveals new beauties. Thank you to everyone who had a part in producing such a fabulous tome! It is a gem in my collection.

If your children do not devour science information, this book may not be very entertaining. You're going to have to be a good salesman and read the poetry well and explain the concepts well. But if you do that the learning it can provide is worth that effort. Its strength is in using animals children are familiar with to explain how evolution works. Dandelions make an excellent evolutionary example for kids. Kids know dandelions and they know how well they can they survive our yard despite our best efforts to get rid of them!

The artwork, creative & artsy prose...it's just a great book.
My boys enjoyed learning about the different animals.
And, I think the precursor...the inside cover spread that puts a face to Earth's timeline...helps put the poetry/stories about various kinds of animals into perspective.
We learned something AND enjoyed it!

beautiful graphics, charming prose, facts wisely selected and presented;
and not only children will be edified. this outstanding little delight
reminds us case-by-case of champion species that have passed The Test:
survival, adaptability, over vast sweeps of time. maybe, maybe,
way way in the future, homo sapiens will earn a chance to join these supremes.

Every household with kids should have this book! The illustrations and poetry are totally awesome. Should BE ubiquitous!

My kids and I have checked this book out of the library many times, and I finally decided just to buy it. It's a great way to learn about evolutionary biology and the poems are full of voice and personality. The illustrations are unique and clever. I plan to use it in my seventh grade language arts course as an example of how to use a nonfiction topic to generate poetry. Excellent book!

This book is worth giving just for the gecko on the cover - and worth keeping for all the other illustrations, and poems, inside.
Most of my family and friends have these! From me!
