Steve Noon's award-winning A Street Through Time has been revised and updated for a new generation. In a series of fourteen unique illustrations, A Street Through Time tells the story of human history by exploring a street as it evolves from 10,000 BCE to the present day. Readers will see how the landscape and the daily lives of people changed as a small settlement grows into a city, is struck by war and plague, and gains trade and industry. Throughout the book readers are asked to find a time traveler character who is hiding in every scene and to pick out other interesting details. These fun interactive elements encourage children to pore over the details again and again and to absorb the information. The book shows how daily life in the street was affected by historical events such as the growth of agriculture, the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, and the coming of the Industrial Revolution. Then extra photographic spreads at the back of the book put each scene in wider historical context by listing other important events taking place around the globe, illustrated with images of key people and artifacts.
