Overview

Ice Age by Stewart Ross


Young readers take an exciting pictorial journey back to the time when a third of the Earth’s surface was covered in ice and snow—and where the earliest human beings vied with ferocious, now-extinct animals for life’s necessities. Dramatic color illustrations on every page of this absorbing book are complemented with fascinating descriptions of the predators, the scavengers, the ice age sea creatures, the Neanderthals, and the early modern humans. An illustrated time chart guides young readers through the various prehistoric eras, focusing on the Great Ice Age, which began 1.7 million years ago and ended approximately 10,000 years ago. Illustrated spreads that follow describe--

  • The Neanderthal as nomad, cave dweller, and hunter
  • Ice Age Mammals, including giant sloths and wooly mammoths
  • Ice Age Predators, including short-faced bears and saber-toothed cats

    The book’s dramatic illustrations include three exciting pop-up scenes—one of them, a saber-toothed cat attacking a giant wooly mammoth. A die-cut window on the book’s front cover vividly reveals a saber-toothed tiger illustrated on the title page.
