This simple book compares photographs of houses and homes in the early 20th century with similar scenes as typically seen today. Child readers are encouraged to look in detail at the photographs to learn about life in the past and how it is different today. HOUSES AND HOMES includes flats, terrace houses, town houses, country cottages, homes on narrow boats and travellers' homes. Differentiated text enables less able readers to access the information in the book as well as providing more detailed information for the more able. Detailed information on each of the historical photos is provided at the back of the book for teachers as well as a picture glossary, index and lists of further reading and places to visit. This new edition of one of a popular series has been updated with some new photos of life today.
