I have a four-year-old fan! An alert reader writes:
Dear Dr. Coyne,
I am writing to let you know how much I am enjoying reading your book ‘Why Evolution Is True.’ While I have long been interested in the sciences my eyes have been opened even farther with the evidence this book presents.
And if it wasn’t enough that I am enjoying your book, my 4 year old son keeps stealing it from me at every opportune moment. He can’t seem to get enough of all the pictures and diagrams in the book. He is particularly fond of the diagram near the beginning of the book that shows the evolutionary change from reptiles to dinosaurs to birds. Since I have explained the diagram to him he now goes around telling everyone that birds came from dinosaurs. You can never start teaching them science and critical thinking too early!
I’ve attached a picture I thought you might enjoy.
