The Best Way to Teach History to Preschoolers
A Street Through Time is our densest, most jam-packed historical picturebook. And what is the best way to teach history to preschoolers? Teach them with pictures, of course.

A 12,000-Year Walk Through History
With child-friendly drawings spanning 12,000 years, your preschooler will be mesmerized by the wonderfully detailed illustrations as well as the fascinating historical content in A Street Through Time. Every oversized two-page spread traces the history of people living in Britain from ancient through medieval and modern times. A Street Through Time brings to life the changes that occurred at fourteen key periods of history and will help your child understand how the past influences the future.

Revealing the Continuity of History
While the first period, labeled 10,000 BC, is nearly all conjecture, the remaining pages are brilliant, showing changes in religion, food, clothing, farming, etc. Though not a history text, A Street Through Time graphically reveals the continuity of history.Each double-page spread includes a brief descriptive paragraph, while the borders on the pages provide fascinating and sometimes startling pieces of information and specific scenes to locate. Through successive time periods, your child will be able to track how buildings from a previous era have been adapted for other uses. Plus, the illustrator has hidden a figure, named Henry Hyde, in each scene; finding him is an adventure in itself!

See What Happens on a Typical Day
A Street Through Time is targeted for children aged nine to twelve, but this book has a much broader appeal. While those older children will find this book absorbing, curious four- and five-year-olds will love it too, because even pre-readers can learn about how people lived by viewing all that takes place on a typical day.

Will Be Pored Over for Many Years
This is a book that will be pored over for many years. But as the scenarios are realistic, parents who don't want to introduce their younger children to wars, plague, or other religions may find A Street Through Time is not a good match for their family. On the other hand, if you are looking for an illustrated presentation of reasons that this world needs a Savior, then here it is.

    A wonderful addition to our history July 24, 2015
    Reviewer: Sarah  
    This wasn't part of our original curriculum but I decided to add it in after I read about the Time Traveler. I may have been a huge Where's Waldo fan in my early life and I may also want to foster that love in my own offspring! It's text is bit old for my kindergartener, but the intoxicating pictures and the hunt for Mr. Henry Hyde is enough to have them sitting pretty while I read the tidbits of text to the rest of us. It's a beautiful book with a wonderful glimpse back in time that I will keep on the bookshelf for years to come. I wish that it was bigger, so that all of us could look on in one sitting. That's the 4 star rating. It's truly worth the cost, even if we have to take turns!

    The more I use this, the more I dislike it January 26, 2015
    Reviewer: Emily B.  
    I purchased this book to use as part of my kindergarten curriculum. At first, I enjoyed the set-up of the book and the brief explanation of the time period included on each page. However, the further we have moved through the book, the darker the topics have become, asking the child to find pictures of slaves, a man showing symptoms of the plague, a man getting his leg cut off, etc. This is too much for a kindergartner. The concept of the book is good, but the content is not right for such a young child.

    Will be enjoyed for a long time June 22, 2014
    Reviewer: Sarah W.  
    I got this for my 3 year old and he loves looking at it with me and asking questions and finding the things that show up throughout the book. I know we will enjoy it for many years. DK does it again. Can't wait to get a City through Time for him soon. Great way to enjoyably introduce history to little learners.

    Fun way to include a bit of history! May 31, 2012
    Reviewer: Christine  
    A Street Through Time is VERY detailed and has a lot going on in each street to depict each culture. We like that it includes searches like the Waldo books to engage the kids in each page. A fun way to include history!
