Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Hutmacher presents the concept of an hour as a unit of time in brief, rhyming text. Hours can be measured with hourglasses, analog clocks, and digital clocks, she writes. Examples of how one might pass an hour include write a story, build a sandcastle, paint a picture, grocery shop, take a dance class, watch a show, pile leaves, bake a cake, clean your room, and ride your bike. Colorful photographs featuring attractive children from a variety of ethnic groups appear on the left side of each spread, while the text is displayed in large font on the right. A note to parents and teachers states that the "It's About Time" series supports national mathematics standards related to measurement and data. Includes a table of contents, a glossary, a bibliography, the URL for a recommended website, and an index. This provides a good introduction to the concept of an hour of time for young children. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
