Kudos to Charlotte Bennardo (on left) for her first solo authored book and to Cathleen Daniels for providing the illustrations to make the book sing. Can’t wait to talk more about this book and do a Book giveaway in September.
Evolution Revolution: Simple Machines (Book 1) is the story of a gray squirrel, befriended by a young boy who names him Jack and teaches him about wheels, the first simple machine. When bulldozers and trucks come into Jack’s wood, threatening his tree, Jack believes that with the help of the other woodland animals, they can stop the machines- by using the wedge, another simple machine. Their war draws attention from the humans, and that won’t be good.
The age range is 8-12.
