One Small Blue Bead
by Byrd Baylor & Ronald Himler

A simple but powerful picture book set among a tribe of prehistoric people. When a boy dreams of other people, an old man decides to go on a journey to see if other humans exist. More than just a look at prehistoric people, this book powerfully speaks about self-sacrifice and the interconnectedness of humanity across time.
