A Street Through Time by Steve Noon and DK - a competition

A street

DK are updating our classic book A Street Through Time, and as part of this they want to know what children think a street will look like in 2070!

DK are inviting you to have your child or class draw and write about the street of the future. To help inspire them they have some things they may want to think about:

- Transport
- Buildings
- Clothes
- Home

To say thank you for these ideas they will enter you into a competition to win £50 of DK children’s books!

You can find out more information here.

The closing date is 22nd March 2019.

And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
