The second book of this series about our universe is a scientifically accurate telling of the story of the formation of Earth, ending with the dinosaurs. Gorgeous and ethereal illustrations and a story that brings children into a state of connectedness with the universe makes this an amazing book for parents and teachers who want to instill in kids a deep appreciation for themselves, their community, and the need to protect this planet that we all reside.

When we take the time to learn about the beginnings of the universe, the miraculous conditions that make our existence possible, and how we are physically part of everything around us, a sense of connection forms and hopefully results in a desire to do good for the world around us and everyone in it.

"Once upon a time" meets science in a children's picture book that tells the thrilling story of how life began on Earth. This book, the second in Universe trilogy, picks up the story where Born With A Bang: The Universe Tells Our Cosmic Story left off, with the first appearance of life on Earth. It's a thrilling story about how Earth triumphs over crisis to become bacteria, jellyfish, flowers . . . even dinosaurs!

A perfect series of kids books for:
  • teachers and librarians looking for a series of books that explains the story of our universe.
  • parents and teachers following Montessori's cosmic curriculum.
  • long time fans of Dawn Publications starting with the classic Sharing Nature With Children.
