Bang! How We Came to Be by Michael Rubino
« on: October 20, 2011, 05:16:34 AM »
“BANG! And that was it, the beginning of everything.”
 
So begins this beautifully illustrated, panoramic story of evolution written for children ages nine and up. Author and illustrator Michael Rubino conveys not only the facts but also the excitement of the scientific explanation of our world, from the origin of the universe in the “big bang” to the present reality of our planet, teeming with life but threatened by overpopulation and pollution.
 
Parents looking for an easy-to-understand guide to the scientific worldview for their children will find the perfect source in Bang!: How We Came to Be. The formation of stars and galaxies; the origin of our solar system and the earth; the epochal march of life from single-celled organisms through bacteria, insects, fish, dinosaurs, birds, and early mammals; to the evolution of the first humans from their simian cousins—it’s all here.
 
 Throughout the text, the author emphasizes the family ties established by genetics that link the human race to every other form of life. Inspired by the elaborate artwork of medieval artists, he makes generous use of illuminated letters along with highly detailed, realistic illustrations of the natural world and life at various stages of development.
 
The result is an eloquent blend of art and science to tell the most important story so far known.

Michael Rubino (Los Angeles, CA) is a self-employed artist who paints mostly symbolic, figurative works in oil on canvas, as well as portraits and landscapes in many styles.
