When a young girl asked her father "Who was the first person?" He wasn't quite sure how to respond. Should he tell her the traditional story of Adam and Eve as he had been taught, or should he try to explain evolution? He decided to give her a scientific answer.

“Sweetie, there wasn’t a first person. People gradually evolved from apes. You see, millions of years ago people were just like the chimpanzees living in the jungles. Then we started to figure things out by asking questions, just like you do. Over time we became smart enough to invent things, and then we used those things to invent more things, and the rest is history.”

His answer didn’t satisfy her. “But there had to be a first one," she persisted, "Who was it?”

If you've ever wondered how or why our most distant ancestors first walked on two legs, made stone tools, learned to control fire and more, this book can help. All these events are demystified in this series of simple stories, suitable for all audiences.

These are stories of the first humans. These are stories of how we became Human.
