Discover the mysteries of science with Future Geniuses!

Darwin the chicken feels like the smallest animal in the farm, but he wants to be big and strong like a dinosaur.

Come along with Valentina, a young paleontologist, in this adventure about the history of evolution and find out how she gets Darwin to feel proud of who he is!

Valentina and Darwin travel back in time to find the origin of life. They go all the way back, before there were any plants or even animals in the world.

Valentina teaches Darwin about unicellular organisms, bad and good mutations, and variations.

Then they observe microevolutions and macroevolutions, which lead to new species. Soon, Valentine and Darwin are surrounded by invertebrates and vertebrates and then—dinosaurs!

But what happened to the dinosaurs? And how did the dinosaurs eventually evolve into birds?
Future Geniuses is a collection that will help families spend a lot of time reading and learning together. Through simple text and fun illustrations, author and scientist Carlos Pazos makes the subjects of evolution, and specifically dinosaurs and their creation and extinction, approachable and easy to understand for even the smallest scientists.
