Stone Age Bone Age! A Book about Prehistoric People

Author: Mick Manning
Illustrator: Brita Granström
Publisher: Watts

Readers are invited to envisage that they are part of a family living in the Upper Palaeolithic age, about 12,000 years ago, when people used stone, bone, wood and animal skin to make everything. There are two sets of text on each spread. One is in poetic language addressed directly to the reader and inspires imaginative involvement. The other, in an italic font, is more explanatory. The book encourages readers to consider how clever prehistoric people were in the ways they adapted to their environment and the limited resources they had available.
