The spectacle of Stone Age life stampedes off the page in an engaging, eye-popping gift book illustrated by a Kate Greenaway Medal winner.

Are you brave enough to come face-to-face with the biggest and most awe-inspiring prehistoric beasts? In this dramatic introduction to the Stone Age world, the stupendous giants that shared the earth with our human ancestors—from the woolly mammoth and the fearsome saber-toothed cat to the elephant bird and the giant wombat—leap, slither, and swoop to life on eighteen atmospheric and densely packed double-page spreads spotlighting animals from around the globe. Each lively profile is anchored to a stunning illustration by Kate Greenaway Medal winner Grahame Baker-Smith and features jaw-dropping facts about the animal’s anatomy and behavior, with an emphasis on how it interacted with early humans. Sidebars highlight scientific name, weight, territorial range, and extinction dates, while a glossary and end notes offer additional color and context to round out a boldly packaged and richly absorbing journey of discovery.

Stone Age Beasts was a fascinating read about the giant animals that are now extinct. The book did a great job putting the size of these beasts into comparisons that are easy to understand. This book was awe-inspiring to imagine these great beasts and how perilous this period would have been to early humans. It contained the common animals we all know such as wooly mammoth but so many other animals that were new to me. This book is sure to captivate fans of ancient history and those who love animals. This book aligns well with the Montessori curriculum on the study of early humans and the timeline of life. Overall, this was an intriguing read sure to keep a reader coming back to read again.

Stone Age Beasts is a gorgeous book about animals from around the stone age. This book includes a table of contents, organizing the book by each animal, which made it easy to go back through for research purposes, as well as a fun glossary at the end.

Stone Age Beasts contains a multitude of facts about the beasts featured, including the scientific name, weight, and locations where they would have lived.
I like that the author included a little bit of information on what/when the stone age was. This gives children perspective of how life had been several hundred to thousands of years ago.

This would make a fantastic gift for children who have an interest in animals and history.
