A Helpful Complement

Reviewed by Parent/Teacher

The book "Life in the Great Ice Age" by Michael and Beverly Oard would be a big help to any parent using CHOW. So many of us aren't sure where the cavemen and "stone age" fit into real Biblical history since we were taught evolutionary timelines ourselves. This book is written in narrative form and will really help us answer our children's questions and identify the evolutionary remarks in those first few chapters of CHOW. You might even consider reading "Life in the Great Ice Age" as a substitute for CHOW chapters 1-4.
