Charles Darwin first visited the Galápagos Islands almost 200 years ago, only to discover a land filled with plants and animals that could not be found anywhere else on earth. How did they come to inhabit the island? How long will they remain? Thoroughly researched and filled with intricate and beautiful paintings, this extraordinary book by Award-winning author and artist Jason Chin is an epic saga of the life of an island—born of fire, rising to greatness, its decline, and finally the emergence of life on new islands. Chin's approach makes this book a must-have common core tool for teachers and librarians introducing scientific principals to young students. Island is one of Kirkus Reviews' Best Children's Books of 2012

Accurately detailed, colorable images of flora and fauna from the exotic islands that inspired Darwin's theory of evolution From Charles Darwin's historic visit in 1835 to the present wave of tourism by naturalists and nature lovers, the Galapagos Islands have proved to be a fascinating destination. Once a favorite pirate hideaway, the islands are home to a rich variety of plant and animal life, many unique to the archipelago. It was here that the young Charles Darwin first observed the differences in species that led to the formulation of his landmark theory of evolution. Carefully researched illustrations spotlight 32 unusual animals from these isolated islands off the west coast of South America. Depicted amid the vegetation in their native habitats are: • Giant tortoise • Leaf-toed gecko • Flightless cormorant • Rice rats • Sulphur butterfly • Blue-footed booby • Spotless ladybug • Giant longhorn beetle • Great frigatebird • Squeak bug • Vermilion flycatcher • Sally lightfoot crabs . . . and 20 other forms of wildlife. A fascinating, descriptive caption accompanies the illustration of each unique creature and plant.
