Our girls are completely engrossed by this story of a young girl, not so unlike them, who participates in a community celebration 30,000 years ago.

This story has long been a favourite and became even more interesting to our girls upon news of the recent discovery of a much more ancient three-year-old female hominin known now as “Lucy’s Baby“.
