Book Review


With the help of archaeologists, the secret of what has happened in the past becomes clearer. Historians have studied the measurements of handprints, fingerprints, and footprints to discover that many paintings and markings were in fact created by children rather than adults. All throughout history, children have left their mark in different ways. Through studying what these children have left behind, young readers learn they are not too different from children of the past.
