Topic - Childrens book recommendation on "origins"

jonny taylor on 22 Jul 2014
My 6 year old niece is very curious and intelligent and at the moment is interested in the "origins of stuff", big bang, evolution etc was what was suggested. Does anyone have any recommendations for a book that might be suitable for her? I think the ideal would be something that, without leaving her completely out of her depth, is a little bit challenging and stimulating of further questions.

I am honestly not sure what to look for for a child of that age, but I'm hoping to find something that is not just a "childrens story" but can stimulate wonder and fascination in a way that is accessible to a 6 year old. I'm thinking the big bang/universe is a better bet - evolution was also suggested but it's not obvious to me what to look for and I suspect that most would either be "dinosaur books" or response-to-creationism... as a child I read masses about the universe but can't recall coming across any equivalent books about "life".

p.s. although she lives in the southern US I am assured that this is NOT because they aren't going to be taught it at school!
