Leslee Love: I don't know off hand; but surely there must be. Try googling, and certainly look for information on Junior Skeptic edited by Daniel Loxton. Issues 26 and 27 are useful.
Here's a book on evolution in Portuguese (!) which will appear in English in 12 months time.

First Junior Skeptic Book Released
In commemoration of Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday on February 12th, 2009, the Skeptics Society unveils a major new educational outreach project: the release of the first Junior Skeptic book, Evolução (“Evolution”). 10,000 copies of this gorgeous, full-color, illustrated kids’ science book are being distributed to public school students in Portugal — completely free.

Reprising material originally published in Junior Skeptic #26 and #27, the book is produced by Pat Linse, written by Junior Skeptic Editor Daniel Loxton, and illustrated by Daniel Loxton and Jim W. W. Smith.
The book is published at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (an international nonprofit organization headquartered in Lisbon) as part of an ambitious Darwin 2009 public education program with partners that include the American Museum of Natural History and the Portuguese Ministries of Science & Technology and Education.

Wondering where you can get your hands on a copy? You’ll have to wait. This free Portuguese-language school edition is an exclusive educational project for students in Portugal. But not to worry: an English-language version is in full production now at a major North American publisher! Look for the enhanced and expanded version scheduled for wide release early in 2010

Hi Dr. Meaden! I was wondering if you knew of any books that are children-friendly regarding Darwin. I was schooling him this morning before he actually went to school, and thought a book of some sorts would be better visual! Let me know..Happy Darwin Day!!

So honoured to be in your company Terence and to have you on my side. Thrilled to find another oasis of reason apart from Richard Dawkins wonderful website. The more common ground more intelligent free-thinking people share the better for seeking truth for the benefit of each individual and for humanity!

Thank you Dr. Meaden for the welcome. So much to learn and so little time. So much to do and no time at all.
I wish that our rational dialog lead to solutions to the long term Earth's ecological health.
I imagine Darwin in the Galapagos Islands or in South America marveling at nature, absorbing all; what will he do if coming back sees the destruction being perpetrated against all forms of life?

To Carol,
You are so right.
Moreover, the short of it is that all religions are just plain wrong, having been invented usually by men with rules to suit themselves.
But how do we get that over as a message? Most people will never change their minds. They are comfortable as they are---and as for the more intelligent ones, they are intellectually lazy.
Terry, of the group ORIGINS.

Thanks Dr. Terence. I look forward in making new friends in this group. It's hard when you have friends still in the dark believing the power of prayer and all of that other nonsense. I feel sorry for those people in a way.... yet, we all have the freedom to learn and know what is real and what is not. The information is out there! Even as a child, I always questioned what was taught to me that didn't make any sense at all. I guess for some people, religion and the belief in a god is a safe way to exist for them, for they are scared of life. I don't know...

Hope to make friends!

I love all those things also. I was raised a cathoilc. They showed me statues and guys wearing dresses. I went to the Museum of Natural History in NYC as a young child and they showed me truth and reality. Religion ended in that temple of beauty. I still take vacations to NYC every year or two and I always visit the museum. Last year I had the honor of having an audiance with Dr. Neil Degrass Tyson, the head of the Planatariuam. He and I both attened classes there (in different years) for astronomy. He autographed a couple of his books for me and I had a picture taken with him that I hang proudly next to my PC.

Thanks. I have spent the balance of my life repairing the mental damage that they have done. I helped my 3 other brothers leave the cult. I also have spent a lot of time researching the history that the Dubbers like to hide, such as the 607 BC problem and all the dates of the supposed end of the world that many new and even older dubbers have no idea about. When they come to my door they end up running fast. They love it when people curse them or yell at them, it is to them a sign of "Satan’s world " attacking them. But when you ask them questions about their history and they have no idea and maybe even have to research and you have planted the seeds of doubt in a cult.
