A Street Through Time : Timeless

A Street Through Time book for kids

It is rare to find a book that all three of my boys can enjoy together. With such varied interests, I long for something captivating (and non-electronic) that has the ability to sustain their attention long enough for me to take a shower.

DK Publishing has answered my prayers. A Street Through Time
is a beautiful book, and educational to boot. The premise is simple;
each page follows the same street through thousands of years of history
using hyper-detailed illustrations. The book begins with stone age
hunters,
and each page that you flip takes you to another era in history.

The
coolest part is explaining to your children that the street you live on
is constantly changing, too. Throw in some Google Maps and you can
really rock their worlds.  All while gaining precious extra
minutes of shower time for
me. -Eva

    One of my students brought in this book and it was a wonderful way to show children how a place changes over time. It is on my “must buy” list.
