Nice story based on actual events
12 March 2019 - Published on Amazon.com
This is a nice story about the discovery of cave paintings at the Lascaux Cave in France. This discovery was made by a group of boys who were not entirely certain whom they should tell since this was 1940, and France was at war with Germany. They finally decide to trust their former science teacher, and he gets a look inside of the cave. They also contact a French priest who is an expert on prehistoric animals. He comes to view the cave and realizes that some of the paintings depict extinct animals. After the war, the cave becomes an important scientific site, which can also be viewed by the public. The leader of the boys who found it has by now grown up and has a job helping to safeguard the cave paintings.
Good for kids

This book is basically a summary of how the world-famous paintings at Lauscaux were discovered. It then shows a recreation of how the paintings were made. It has a surprise ending, which you can read about more in an issue of National Geographic. I would recommend this book for anyone with a kid who loves Step-Into-Reading, as well as prehistory.
They actually really enjoyed the story

My 6th grade art students gave me dubious looks when they saw the level of this book, but I told them I wanted a quick story to read about the cave paintings so we could get to actually making our own paintings. They actually really enjoyed the story, and it gave them an excellent background to why the paintings are there, and why they are special.

Bought this for my step son who is 9, he is behind on his reading level so this is perfect for him. He doesn't get bored since there aren't huge paragraphs, nice pictures, and some new words for him to learn.
I love these series

I love these series. But most important that my son does. I got 40+ books and he loves to read them (usually it is not that easy to make him read). I got mix of 2-3-4 levels for the second grader, second level is too easy, but it creates some fun and he reads them with pleasure. Love it, I would recommend it.
