Can anyone recommend a book that explains evolution in a way a 4 yo can grasp?

I'm getting lots of questions from DS1 along the lines of 'how did people first appear?', 'what colour were the dinosaurs?', etc. Does anyone know a book that tackles the mechanisms of evolution in a very basic way?

My DD loves her copy of The story of Everything. She's had it since she was about 4.
It's a lightening fast journey from the Big Bang, through dinosaurs and human evolution up to the development of a modern city.

And it's a pop-up book.

Brilliant grin

The OU do a great colour poster. It's available free from the OU part of the BBC website.
