Stone Age Stories


An article I wrote a while ago has just gone online on the English 4-11 website. The article reviews the books used by teachers for their caves topic with Year 2 children (ages 6-7).

The article’s aimed at teachers and school librarians, so there’s no analysis of the representation of prehistory in the stories (the only one to avoid stereotypes is Satoshi Kitamura’s excellent Stone Age Boy).

However, it is worth checking out for the pictures of the cave-dwellings made by the children in Year 2.
