Overlooked by history until now, Little Sapiens reveals how prehistoric children may have been the very drivers of human evolution. 

This bold new investigation combines previously hidden 20,000-year-old clues, expert analysis, and cutting-edge research to reveal how our junior ancestors learned through play and apprenticed alongside their elders, and how they likely played a far more significant role in society than we ever imagined.  

From Ice Age toys to evidence of a prehistoric mud-fight—and with comparative observations to how kids live, play, and learn today—it’s a fascinating journey that reveals how these curious young minds sparked innovation and joy long before recorded history.
