Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2008 Spring)
These books compare and contrast modern methods of communication, transportation, and work with how people approached these topics at random "long ago" points in time. Each page features a clear photograph and one line of text; the books make generalizations that could confuse young children. Simple picture glossaries are appended. Ind.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2008 Fall)
This beginning social studies series compares past and present forms of communication, work, housing, etc. Drawings and archival photographs contrast drastically with full-color contemporary scenes. Kids will enjoy identifying old-fashioned radios and other outdated objects, but the series is marred by overly simplistic comparisons, occasionally stilted Spanish, and uneven back matter (for example, La vida en la escuela has only one glossary entry). Glos., ind.
