London Through Time (Cities Unfolded) by Angela McAllister and Nick Maland (Frances Lincoln Children's Books)

We love to lose ourselves in London and we truly love to lose ourselves in fantastic books that show off and celebrate our capital. This neat new format of "Cities Unfolded" books details the living history of cities around the world, starting off with our capital. Stretching back in history to the very beginnings of the settlement on the Thames, through to the mighty metropolis we know and love today, this is a fascinating pocket-sized book that you can take with you on London days out.

Each era is depicted in the fold-out format of this book with scenes, buildings, costumes and people you'd expect to find in those historical periods. A stack of facts and figures are also shoehorned in, making this an incredibly detailed snapshot of a city's history, landmarks and daily life.

Charlotte's best bit: Victorian London at the height of the Industrial Revolution!

Daddy's Favourite bit: A superb pocket format fold out book that's crammed with fascinating information.
