My Ice Age Struggles: What was it like to live during the Ice Age? by Rich Linville takes young readers back to the Ice Age and gives them glimpses of how life was during that period. The earth was colder and part of it was covered with ice and snow for a very long time. The people who lived during that time worked with others so that they could survive. They gathered plants and hunted animals. They mainly hunted the wooly mammoth and had to be careful so that these animals did not become extinct. Life was not easy in those days and they covered their huts with animal hides for protection from the snow and cold wind. The fire was their friend and it kept them warm, gave them light in the dark, and cooked their food. The frozen ground was their refrigerator and it kept their meat from getting spoiled. They invented their tools using stones and wood. Let's read more to learn how they respected animals and how they lived, protecting themselves from wild animals and the cold weather.

My Ice Age Struggles by Rich Linville is interesting and informative and gives young readers a peek into the lives of people who lived during the Ice Age in an engaging and entertaining way. It takes readers up to the time when people realized they could capture wild baby goats and domesticate them, and use leftover seeds to grow new plants to eat, making them farmers. The illustrations make the concept palpable and easy to picture. The story is simple and it is a good one for parents to use for bedtime storytelling to teach children about the Ice Age and life during that time. Tutors can use it for read-aloud and storytelling sessions in classrooms and school libraries, making science appealing to youngsters.
