Product Description

Since the early days of our history, we have been human animals. Thousands of years ago, in paleolithic times, we got up with the sun each morning. The seasons were our calendar, and everything we ate we picked or caught. Some animals were our friends, and others were our food. We loved to meet and talk and dance and wonder at our world. Centuries and centuries have passed since then, but even though our world is very different now, we are still human animals like the people before us. With simple, poetic words and evocative illustrations, We Are Human Animals transports readers to the Stone Age, when our ancestors were shaping what Homo sapiens would become. Spark important discussions about the history of humanity and the ties that bind us to those who walked the earth long ago with this reflection on what it means to be human, in the prehistoric past and today.52 pages, hardcover. Ages 5 to 9.

Publisher's Description

A resonant reflection on what it means to be human, in the prehistoric past and today.

Since the early days of our history, we have been human animals. Thousands of years ago, in paleolithic times, we got up with the sun each morning. The seasons were our calendar, and everything we ate we picked or caught. Some animals were our friends, and others were our food. We loved to meet and talk and dance and wonder at our world. Centuries and centuries have passed since then. But—even though our world is very different now—we are still human animals like the people before us.

With simple, poetic words and evocative illustrations, this book transports readers to the strangely familiar Stone Age, when our ancestors were shaping what Homo sapiens would become.  We Are Human Animals will spark unforgettable discussions about the history of humanity and the ties that bind us to those who walked the earth long ago.
