This World Was Made For Me!
Was the world made 'for' us?
This playful, cautionary tale explores life's evolution through the five mass extinctions. Readers will swim with the Earth's first microbes, burrow underground just in time to escape the dinosaur's fiery fate, and repeatedly laugh as each sole survivor foolishly boasts how "This world was made for me!" before going extinct next. More importantly, readers will gain a deep appreciation for our small, yet special place on the fragile blue planet we call home.
“From children to adults it is almost impossible for any of us to look around the world and not think that this was all made for you and me (especially me!) Alas, it’s not true, but understanding how the world made us, makes us (and all other species) special and unique. Every child should read this book. So should every adult.”
