Summary
  • Creative nonfiction picture book explains evolution and natural selection. A newly-emerged peppered moth blends in with other speckled-winged moths on lichen-covered branches, but over time the moths with black wings increase as trees are blackened by soot from man-made machines
  • A light peppered moth sleeps, hidden among the lichen and bark on a tree. A black peppered moth sleeps, its dark wings standing out against the same tree's pale branches. The light moth is better camouflaged from predators. So more of the light moths will survive and pass their wing colors on to their offspring. Until one day the world starts to change. Then the moths start to change too. This true story of the peppered moth is a remarkable introduction to the scientific concepts of natural selection and evolution. --
