Stone Age Boy
This historical fiction picture book is a great introduction to archaeology and stone age people for younger children – for us it is the one essential book on the subject.
When a boy falls down a hole he finds himself back in the stone age. His new friend introduces him to stone age life.
This is a great children’s picture book – well written and beautifully illustrated and unusual in bringing historical fiction to younger children. Stone Age Boy is a great introduction to a very different way of life, showing how stone age people made tools, hunted, and cooked. A particularly nice touch is the beautiful pictures of stone age animals on the inside covers.
Whilst the simple text and story make it suitable for reading to younger children the detail in the central spread make for an useful introduction and discussion point for older children.
