5.0 out of 5 stars Love This Series! 15 May 2011
By Justine Olawsky - Published on
My daughter is eight and just loves this series. She recently requested that I borrow the Mammoth Hunter one from the library again, so I just went ahead and bought it from Amazon. It is funny, the information on the book says that the reading level is for ages 4-8. No wonder the 1st Grade teacher was confused! This series is marvelous for 3rd - 5th grades, as the other reviewer said. They are rather sophisticated in layout (many fast-paced "blurbs" of informtaion splattered on the pages instead of a slow, steady narrative), language, and themes. But, how fun is it to learn the down and dirty aspects about historical times and cultures? So fun! Really a hoot of a series. Not only does my daughter thoroughly enjoy these books, but I've purchased them for my friend's son who is a couple years older, and he loves them, too! In other words, I think that these books will have a long shelf life in the interest realm of your child.
4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of information presented in a funny manner 24 April 2013

This is a great book for kids to learn about mammoths. The cartoons are great and the information is precise and concise. I would highly recommend for the 6-10 year old who is interested in mammoths.
5.0 out of 5 stars just as good as the others in this series 18 Oct 2010

My grade 4 daughter loved this book, as she has with many others in this series. It is funny, informative and kept her reading.

I don't know why people judge books by their expectations (e.g., it wasn't good for my grade 1 students, so I'll give it only 3 stars) and not on its own merits. Book is not meant to be read by grade 1s. It's much better for grades 3 - 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd rather shop for my meat than hunt! 15 Jun 2012
By kozachka - Published on
My child, who is 8.5 years old, loves history and humour, so "You Would Not Want to Be.." series is perfect for him. He has discovered this series at the end of 3rd grade and is now trying to read them all, one by one. This particular book he read twice, and then summarized what it's about as following:

You wouldn't want to be a mammoth hunter! It takes a long time to prepare and the weapons ready. Then the hunter spends a lot of energy to dance and yell, too. After that you need to find an old or weak or sick mammoth so it's easier to kill. It's not yours yet, there maybe attackers. Everyone has to help clean and skin the killed mammoth. I'd rather shop for my meat than hunt!

3.0 out of 5 stars Prehistoric History 24 Mar 2007
By Barb - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the way the book presented ideas about the Ice Age and its inhabitants in a cartoon format. However, I was looking for a book that was appropraite for 1st graders to read independently this would be a little above them. I think 2nd and 3rd graders would enjoy this book and be able to understand the humor.
