The Nature Timeline Wallbook also includes an easy-to-read chronicle that reports on more than forty seminal moments from the timeline in the style of a newspaper. Other features include a page of letters to the editor, a fifty-question quiz, and pocket magnifier. Perfect for ages 6 to 14, but equally fascinating for all curious adults too.
