LoveReading View on The First Hunter

Interest Teen Reading Age 8+. Powerfully told, The First Hunter captures the harsh world of early hunters who survive by stealing the meat that the big cats kill. But can they develop a skill of their own which will enable them to hunt like the cats rather than steal like the jackals? How the group must learn from Wid, the simplest of them all, who comes up with the idea is touchingly told. Struggling and reluctant readers of 14+ will appreciate the shortness of this book and reduced words on the page.
