Timberdoodle's review
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12,000 years, your preschooler will be mesmerized by the wonderfully detailed illustrations as well as the fascinating historical content in A Street Through Time.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.
