              Have you ever wondered what your street was like thousands of years ago? This illustrated history book for children takes you on a 12,000-year journey to find out the story of a single street. Think of the street you live on. Now think of how it may have looked in the Stone Age i...n 10,000 BCE, or in Victorian England during the Industrial Revolution, or how it may look 50 years from now. Steve Noon's A Street Through Time takes you on a time travelling journey that you won't forget. Beautiful double-page illustrations bring 15 key periods in time to life. You will see magnificent buildings go up and come down, new churches built on the site of ancient temples, wooden bridges destroyed and then remade in stone, and statues demolished then unearthed many years later. You'll find out how people lived long ago - the tools they used, what they wore, what they ate, and what they did all day. In addition, you can search for the time traveller in each period and locate the objects that have managed to survive through the ages. Revised and updated for a new generation, A Street Through Time now includes a look at the street 50 years in the future. It's a perfect book for parents and children to look at together. The more you look, the more you'll see.

              All over the country, there are words disappearing from children's lives. Words like Dandelion, Otter, Bramble, Acorn and Lark represent the natural world of childhood, a rich landscape of discovery and imagination that is fading from children's minds. The Lost Words stands again...st the disappearance of wild childhood. It is a joyful celebration of the poetry of nature words and the living glory of our distinctive, British countryside. With acrostic spell-poems by peerless wordsmith Robert Macfarlane and hand-painted illustrations by Jackie Morris, this enchanting book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages.
