really liked it
bookshelves: ya-class, teen-non-fiction

The Tree of Life is a beautifully illustrated and informative biography of Charles Darwin's life that is set up more like a picture book. Text is often written in circles and there are a lot of small pictures of the people and important aspects of his life that are briefly described above. This would be a good non-fiction book to promote to a teen or even tween who needed to learn about Darwin's life and have it not read like a text book. It goes in chronological order and many pages have a "public life," "private life," and "secret life" section to get to know more about Darwin as a person rather than just what his work was about. It is a quick read and would probably be more interesting to read than a thicker book on the same topic for a young person but would still give them valuable information.
