Recently I ordered 6 books about different animals because they seemed to have good photos/pictures. When I read them, one had info that could be interpreted to refer to evolution and 2 of them had photos of animals mating.
So I showed them to about 10 people to get their opinions on whether they thought they were appropriate for our library. There was no consensus. While I think the mating animals would be perfectly fine (I was raised on a farm) most of our library staff didn't think they were ok because, parents might not be prepared to answer questions their kids had. After much thought I remembered a library seminar leader saying that there are so many good books published that we don't have to have books that are questionable. So my question is, do you know of a series of books or publisher that has good quality books, by that I mean books that tell about animals with good photo or illustrations, but without mating and evolution...I'm laughing as I'm writing this...it seems ridiculous to have to be concerned about these things in children's books.
