Synopsis

People and Places by Gerard Cheshire

Who were the first people and how did they live? When did they invent farming, tools, cities? Who were the first artists? This fascinating book answers all the questions children love to ask about humans and human achievements. You can learn how mankind has adapted to different environments on this planet of ours, from the desert to the poles. Marvellously detailed illustrations by speciaist artists show some of the ways in which human beings have made their mark on the planet. Two spreads have been designed with an acetate overlay to show how different creatures live together - or prey on one another. A 'true or false?' quiz runs through the book, with answers given at the end, to make it truly interactive. A glossary and index encourage children to use the book as an educational resource.
