Throughout, children are asked to study the photos in order to find a time traveler in each scene, as well as to pick out interesting details, encouraging them to pore over the unique illustrations and more easily learn about the historical background.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joan Carris
This highly intriguing, educational charmer has few equals in children's factual literature. Readers follow a Stone Age riverside settlement through time, drawn irresistibly into each era as the town develops. Primitive ways lead on to hunters, who are followed by Romans, barbarian hordes, Viking raiders and so on. As the centuries change, so do clothes, buildings, trades, and children's games-all in glorious panorama. Opened out to its fullest, the spread is a dazzling 28"-every illustrator's (and reader's) dream! This book begs to be examined over and over again. I needed eight of them to give as gifts and you will, too.

I bought this for an eight yr. old boy. It is probably better for someone about ten who likes research and history. It is very interesting.
