The First Drawing

Author: Mordicai Gerstein

Reading age: Year 2+

Summary: A brilliant story echoing elements of ‘the boy who cried wolf.’ A young boy who lives in the Stone Age with all of his family has a wild and vivid imagination that begins to irritate his family as he tries to tell them of the things he sees, both in his mind and in reality. One day he meets a woolly mammoth and his family do not believe a word of it, and can also not envision what he is trying to describe. The boy jumps up and begins to draw the woolly mammoth and so he creates the first ever drawing!


– A brilliant concept in making children think about the reality of how ideas used to be conveyed and the first time things could have been done, just as drawing.
– A great story for the Stone Age topic as it brings in elements of their lifestyle
– Told so simply but incredibly effectively.
– Amazing illustrations to accompany the story and bring it to life.
