Parents in Touch
From the Ancient Romans' Londinium settlement to the modern iconic architecture, by way of plague and The Great Fire en route, there are plenty of interactive flaps to inspire your child to explore the vast history of our capital city.
London's changing face from Roman times to today is set out in eight carefully detailed spreads, incorporating over 80 flaps... It's an exciting peep back through time, and - don't be misled by the thick board pages- will interest most ages.
For younger readers there are lots of intriguing flaps and historical spreads in Usborne’s Look Inside London.

High & Ham
A journey through London's history from Roman times to the present day, this book provides fantastic opportunities for developing children's speaking and thinking skills. The book brings home, in a very simple way, how architecture and daily life have changed over the centuries. It is also sturdy and well-made so would withstand the ravages of life in the classroom or school library.

This is an amazing book. I bought it for my nephew who is almost four and although the book has more advanced aspects for older ages the little flaps have kept him entertained all day and it makes a refreshing change to give him and read him a book that is so educational. It will no doubt be a favorite of his for the next few years. I am planning on buying more from the series for him as he was completely captivated with this one.
