Gr 8 Up—This account of the Scopes Monkey Trial seems perfectly designed to engage readers. Yet the narrative's
true genius is that it situates this almost 100-year-old trial over the teaching of evolution in schools within today's
controversies surrounding intellectual freedom, faith, and the media.

Synergy: Scopes Monkey Trial

The SCOPES MONKEY TRIAL challenged the Butler Act prohibiting the teaching of human evolution in schools. Science teacher John Scopes (1900-1970) agreed to become the defendant in the test case pitting science against religion. He was found guilty and the act remained in place until 1967.

Puddles are more than water to splash in. Many living things visit a puddle to drink water, find mud, clean themselves, lay eggs. Backmatter includes information about the importance of puddles, how to make a puddle, how to watch wildlife, and descriptions of the animals featured in the book.
