Richard Dawkins recommends that children start learning about evolution at age five. Today, my five-year-old son attended his first day of kindergarten. (It went very well, and he loves school!) As it happens, I have been considering what kind of extra science instruction I should be giving him at home. Evolution it is!
Dawkins is releasing The Magic of Reality, a fun "all ages" science book, on October 4th. (Earlier in the UK.) Perhaps it will prove helpful with my son, and I definitely think it will be interesting. I hope to post a review once it is out.
