  • This is a gorgeous picture book about Charles Darwin's trip on the Beagle and how it influenced his life. The pictures are lovely and the text is easy to follow and understand. There are lots of diagrams and information to pore over. I can't wait to put this one in my library.'


  • This is a very interesting and beautifully illustrated account of the five years Darwin spent on the Beagle (a 90-foot ship) exploring South America. During this voyage, he collected insects, studied bones, and explored many aspects of life on this interesting continent. This book has great descriptions of his experiences and great map diagrams. This would be a wonderful nonfiction resource to have in my classroom library!


  • Just gorgeous, and the perfect tie-in with another book in I'm reading by Nathaniel Philbrick, In the Heart of the Sea. Themes' maps, as always, are phenomenal!


  • This picture book is easy and enjoyable to read. It focuses on Darwin's curiosity and enjoyment of nature, and it also describes his observations (and many of the animals he saw). However, it's almost exclusively about his years on the HMS Beagle and doesn't really delve into his thinking or work after his experiences. I think it should have included a few other ideas to be really great. I would have liked if the book focused a bit more on Darwin's thinking, instead of simply saying, "Years late [...]


  • A great introductory biography about Charles Darwin, this book details the fateful 5 year voyage of the HMS Beagle and Charles Darwin's many discoveries. The information in this book was great, I especially loved the Fun Facts and all of the information in the back. But I thought the illustration style at times was a little too cartoonish, especially in regards to some of the animals in the book. I would recommend this book for 3rd graders.



  • Loved the pictures! Darwin's discoveries are explained in a way young children can understand. Great notes/resources in the back.


  • An interesting book with beautiful illustrations.Me and my 6 year old son loved sharing this very interesting book. Full of amazing animal facts and great illustrations.



  • Detailed watercolor illustrations enhanced with black colored pencils take young readers along the five-year-long voyage aboard the Beagle, the ship on which Charles Darwin served as the naturalist. Departing from England in 1831, the ship sailed around the tip of South America and around the continent of Africa with many side trips in between before returning home in 1836. The images allow readers to catch a glimpse of the flora and fauna and places that captured Darwin's imagination while the [...]


  • For readers interested in Charles Darwin, this gets 4 stars. For me, not so many. This is a beautifully produced book. The author/illustrator has taken every inch to tell her story, from the endpapers to the back cover (and don't forget to peek under the dust cover. The book is full of maps which are not only fun to peruse, but serve to guide the reader through the different highlights of the journey which the author chooses to include. She also adds an interesting backmatter: tiny snippets whic [...]


  • Thermes, Jennifer Charles Darwin’s Around the World Adventure. PICTURE BOOK. Abrams, 2016. $19.Charles Darwin when only 22 when he left his family home and traveled aboard The Beagle for a five year trip around South America and around the world and back to England again.

  • There are those who can never have enough questions answered. They extend themselves daily not content with a reply but wanting to know why. We have all had them in our collective classrooms. We might even be one of those people who have a driving need to know.The world is an entirely different, a better, place because of these people who never rest in their search to obtain a complete picture of whatever it is (or was) they are pursuing. Charles Darwin's Around-The-World Adventure (Abrams Books [...]


  • I enjoyed the illustrations in this book, they are beautiful, detailed and informative without being too much. I'm glad that this story focused on Darwin's trip on the Beagle. It highlights the contributions Darwin made not just in evolution but to biology in general without going into details that would be too much for little kids. I would recommend reading the fun facts on the last page, which I almost missed since it is after the more detailed biography in the back.


  • An accessible introduction to Darwin and the theory of evolution for middle elementary (grades 2-5). Maps, timelines, labels, and cut-aways add to the colorful illustrations to give the reader an idea of the vastness of his travels and observations. Backmatter fills in more details, and be sure to examine the endpapers!


  • Few figures in science could claim a greater influence on modern thinking that Darwin, so this is an especially suitable book for young learners to recognizer him as the adventurer, naturalist, analyst, and original thinker that he was- without picturing him as a gray-haired old buddy-duddy. It is a deft blending of geography, science, storytelling, and puzzle-solving.


  • I'm always looking for good non-fiction books to read aloud to my 3rd and 4th graders and this fit the bill nicely. Bonuses: world travel with maps! Poor student who goes onto a successful career! Exploration of the natural world! Developing scientific theories!


  • A beautiful introduction for elementary age children to Darwin's work, including the difficulty and the controversy. The maps interspersed throughout will help the young follow his 5-year-long Beagle voyage. Just lovely for everyone, but especially for budding naturalists, butterfly nets in tow.


  • Full disclosure: I've known this book since it was a dummy. But what a joy, watching it evolve into its final, gorgeous glory! It's Darwin's trip around the world, told with maps and full of details about plants and animals — fascinating, and at the same time, completely accessible for kids.


  • A very well done picture book, introducing Darwin's scientific journey on the Beagle to young readers. The intricately drawn illustrations are full of details to spend time examining and the endpaper maps and back matter extend the experience. Great for STEM and nature-loving readers.
