How Did I Get Here? Your Story from the Big Bang to Your Birthday

Philip Bunting. Little, Brown, $17.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-316-42344-1
“All life is one.” Bunting challenges readers to think about how they are connected in this humorous and personal journey through the evolution of life on Earth. In a conversational tone that weaves the silly with the informative, the volume begins with the Big Bang (which occurred “in about the time it takes to eat an ice cream cone”) and continues to the first life-form (oddly called “this little lady” in one spread), the emergence of creatures and humans, and the arrival of the reader Earthside. In bold, thickly painted gouache and acrylic illustrations, Bunting gives nearly every character—molecules, planets, and humans—googly eyes and comedic interjections (“How me get here?” asks a caveperson). On the whole, this lighthearted, informative book, with its Saganesque message, is a journey through time and space worth taking. Ages 4–8. (Nov.)
