This Orq. (he cave boy.) by David Elliott, Lori Nichols

 

 

Way back when woolly mammoths and sabertooth tigers roamed the earth, Orq lived and loved his young pet, Woma. When Woma grew to full size, Orq's mother told him to take the animal out of their house cave. Because Orq loved Woma, he started on a campaign to have Woma earn his mother's love. This story is reminiscent of some of the antics from the Flintstones (for those who are old enough to remember the TV cartoon show). The illustrations add context to the story creating an engaging adventure in Orq's life. The text provides opportunities for discussion about how the book is written compared with how we write and speak today. This story may be more appealing to boys, but I enjoyed it very much. This Orq would make a great read aloud in addition to reading it alone. Pick up a copy and enjoy.
