"Youth" is a science fiction short story by Isaac Asimov. It first appeared in the May 1952 issue of Space Science Fiction and was reprinted in the 1955 collection The Martian Way and Other Stories. Youth is one of the rare Asimov stories with alien characters.
Enjoyable - entertaining - easy read - classic Asimov!
An early 1950s work that though well written shows its age as science fiction, but is actually good as a study in human / alien interaction.
Suspense and vicariousness: i couldn't stop reading
Asimov's clear writing style made me feel as though I were in the grass with Red and Slim as they discovered the "animals". The last two pages revealed the final phase of a well-crafted trick on the reader's perception of the characters that prompts the reader to realize that we must not assume we know it all when it comes to encountering something new, someone new, or, especially, an Asimov story.
