Review

Brilliant children's book showing the same suburb visited each ten years, beginning from the present day and travelling backwards until pre colonial days. This book could be read forwards or backwards. It is jammed with history but doesn't feel like a history lesson. Each decade is accompanied by a detailed illustration showing the changes time has made. No wonder it won the Children's Book of the Year. -- Maggie goodreads For anyone with young children, especially if you want them to learn a bit about Australia, this is a cracking read. It really brings Australian history to life. -- Caroline goodreads This fascinating book is like a time capsule of the first 200 years of white settlement in Australia, demonstrating that the Australian community has been influenced by cultures from all around the globe. I found myself just as involved in the story as my children were. If you are looking for a way to introduce your primary school-aged children to Australia's modern history, this book is a wonderful way to begin. Kids' Book Review
