Cute story

Dec 01, 2014

Orq is a cave boy. He has a wooly mammoth as a pet. The pet lives in the cave until he grows too much and Mom sends him out. Orq tries to teach Orq some tricks to help impress Mom, but this doesn't turn out so well. It isn't until Woma saves cave boy's life that Mom sees his worth.

The illustrations in this story are wonderful, colorful and funny.

Three stars because this book for preschoolers is written in cave boy language. Example: "This Orq. He live in cave. He carry club. He cave boy." This sets a bad language example for such young children who will not understand how cave boys speak differently. This story would have been just as cute with complete sentences.
