Our Street (Retrosuburbia for kids)
Beck Lowe and David Holmgren, Illustrated by Brenna Quinlan
Our Street is a fully illustrated story book for upper primary school age children. It explores how suburban life changes between the 1950s and 2020s, and provides a positive vision of the future. It is a useful tool for parents and educators to help inspire children with positive solutions for sustainable and resilient living, whilst reflecting on Australian history.
Join the kids living in a suburban Aussie street over seven decades and into the near future. How do they live? What do they eat? How do their households work? Can you help make your home and neighbourhood a happening place like this street?
