Overview

It's time for another I.Q. adventure.

I.Q.'s class is going to have a busy day. Not only do the students have to do all of their regular work, but they have to prepare the classroom for Parents' Night!

Luckily, Mrs. Furber is also teaching the students everything about telling time. Using all kinds of timekeepers: analog and digital; wall clocks, wristwatches, and stopwatches—they learn the difference between the minute hand and the hour hand, how to count by fives, and the number of hours in a day. I.Q. really wants to make a special surprise for the parents. But will he have time to finish his surprise before Parents' Night begins?

I.Q.'s determination will motivate young readers to tackle this essential skill with excitement and joy.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
I.Q. the class pet learns to tell time in I.Q., It's Time by Mary Ann Fraser, demonstrating how the mouse has fun every hour of the schoolday. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This delightful picture book, the third in a series of books about I.Q., the mouse, shares I.Q.'s day at school as Mrs. Furber and her class prepare for "Parents' Night." I.Q.'s fondest desire is to actually be a student in the class like the "other" children, and he does his best to keep up with them at play and learn with them as they do science and math. A clock on the left page of most of the pages makes clear the activities that Mrs. Furber and her students participate in during the school day. Late in the afternoon, Mrs. Furber sends all of her students home; I.Q. uses this time to create a project in honor of Parents' Night. When Mrs. Furber, the parents and the children arrive that evening, they find that I.Q. has made a clock that shows what the children do during the course of the school day. When Mrs. Furber notes that "one of our students" made the clock, I.Q. is proud. The illustrations in this book are beautifully done, and certainly help to make this a truly delightful story that celebrates the joy of being a student. I would definitely recommend this book as a must have in school libraries. 2005, Walker & Company, Ages 4 to 8.

School Library Journal
PreS-K-The classroom pet featured in I.Q. Goes to School (2002) and I.Q. Goes to the Library (2003, both Walker) is now helping Mrs. Furber's students prepare for Parents' Night. With a digital clock prominently displayed on each page, the endearing mouse takes readers along on an hour-by-hour journey as the children learn about hour and minute hands, counting by fives, and the number of seconds in a minute. I.Q. continues to keep time even after school lets out as he tries to finish his special project before Parents' Night begins at seven-a large clock with a stick figure by each hour telling what happens in the child's day at that time. An analog teaching clock, a wristwatch, and stopwatch are used throughout the story to show different ways of telling time, but the digital clock, instead of a conventional variety, is the main focus as I.Q. tells when it's time for lunch, stories, and recess. Nonetheless, the pencil, gouache, and pen-and-ink cartoons are inviting and children will enjoy this amusing look at a school day as seen through the eyes of a mouse.-Kristine M.

Kirkus Reviews
The focus is on schedules and routines in I.Q.'s latest time-centered outing. The lovable class-pet-who-wants-to-be-a-student is this time preparing for Parents' Night. However, the class's schedule is so busy that he's finding it hard to get his special project done. He helps Mrs. Furber with the science lesson and joins in as the students go through their day-math, reading time, recess, lunch, PE-each governed by the time displayed on a digital clock. Throughout, I.Q. squeezes in work on his surprise, which is a hit with the parents. While the emphasis is on the routine of the school day, there are some elements of telling time mixed in. The students learn the reason for 24-hour days, practice telling time, count by fives and fill in a clock with the correct number of minutes. Fraser also covers the numbers of minutes in an hour and seconds in a minute. Delightful illustrations and wonderfully expressive faces extend the story. A comforting look at what to expect from kindergarten by an already beloved character. (Picture book. 4-8)
