It’s Alive! The Universe Verse: Book 2
Almost one year ago I wrote Bang! An Illustration About The History of Everything, about an illustrated book for children (and grown ups) that teaches them about the Big Bang. The text is written in rhyme and the characters are an elderly couple. The writer/illustrator, James Dunbar has since then organized himself better and started a Kickstarter project to fund book 2 which is illustrated in color.
Within five days he reached the $1000 pledged and by the end of the pledge he raised $6144. With that amount he created It’s Alive! The Universe Verse: Book 2. An illustrated book about the origin of life on Earth. There is an online version available and a free PDF to download. If you prefer paperback you can buy it for $15.95.
As someone who was bored at school in science related classes I can say that The Universe Verse Book is awesome. Even as an adult now I enjoy reading it and learning things about our origin I didn’t know until now. The text reads easy and memorable.
The universe started out tiny and dense, it expanded and cooled, becoming immense, growing each moment in size and suspense.
If you like me are fan of “The Big Bang Theory” and Dr. Sheldon Cooper, learning these basic knowledge about the Big Bang and the origin of live, will help you understand Dr. Coopers yabbering at times.
The book makes an awesome and educational gift to kids that are into science, planets and space. I know of a four year old boy who will be delighted with this book.
