My 7 year old daughter is currently learning about the Stone Age at school. G and her brother love to look through my Usborne brochure and when she spotted The Stone Age book she asked if I could get it for her. So when it arrived the other day she was very excited!
G discovered that the book had arrived after coming home from school! She proceeded to sit and read her book from cover to cover! I was then informed that her favourite part of the book was about the Cave Painters.
I was very impressed how the book captured her attention especially after being at school all day. The text is simple but informative. Plus throughout the book it has inviting graphics. I really liked the glossary at the back which not only gave descriptions of relevant words used in the book but also provided a picture.
It also gives website links which encourages further exploration into the Stone Age. What I loved the most about these links was that they provided ‘Basic Internet Rules’. These are shown below, which I have taken directly from the book:
- Never give out personal information, such as your name, address, school, or telephone number.
- If a website asks you to type your name or email address, check with an adult first.
As a parent the dangers of the internet can be very concerning, so a little information like this goes a long way with me!
Over all I believe that this is an excellent choice for any child who wishes to learn more about the Stone Age.
