It’s About Time

Reviewed by:

This carefully constructed informational picture book is an excellent reference book for children on the various concepts related to time. Initially, the text explains and illustrates, with concrete examples, the concepts of the clock [R second, minute, hour, day, 24-hour clock. Sequenced pictures help illustrate the concepts of AM, and PM (morning, afternoon, evening and night). As the reader advances through the text, there are whimsical characters and engaging illustrations, rhymes, songs, charts, and quizzes to help young students learn about the concepts of day, week, month, year, seasons, and century. This book will capture children’s attention through the colourful, comic-style pictures, the text variety (e.g. various fonts, speech bubbles, bolded text), and the relevant examples and activities related to time. This is not necessarily a book for a single reading, but rather a book that can be read and studied in small chunks as a child, or classroom of children, develops an understanding of the various components of time.
