When We Met Neanderthals Coloring Book by Neil Bockoven, Ph.D. takes young readers back to Ice Age Europe 45,000 years ago when Moctu and Nuri lived. The Neanderthals were a different type of human that lived in Europe 250,000 years before all of us. Moctu enjoyed being with the older men and learning new skills and Nuri was learning to tan hides, sew, and make medicine. Moctu and Nuri saw the Neanderthals while they were hunting and they wanted to drive the Neanderthals away because they were on their hunting grounds. The Neanderthals called themselves the Pale Ones because of their skin tone. Let's read the book to learn how Moctu and Nuri helped make peace between their people and the Neanderthals.

When We Met Neanderthals Coloring Book is informative, educational, and engaging and will give young readers glimpses of the age when the Neanderthals lived. Neil Bockoven's approach to the topic is interesting and interactive with scientific facts, fun facts, questions to ponder, and coloring pages which will pull youngsters into the book. Vladimir Kirichenko's illustrations are wonderful and they make the book appealing and captivating. The thought of making this a coloring book is a good idea because that makes it easy for young readers to absorb the information without feeling bored. It is a good book for parents and tutors to use at home and in classrooms to teach children about history in a way that can be understood easily.
