Time zones, time machines, timepieces . . . the many playful possibilities of time, the ways we think and wonder about it, are explored in a cheerful collection of original verses. In the vivid illustrations, executed in Cathryn Falwell's signature cut-paper collage, a lively sprite leads the way ...

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book will be a valuable resource for teachers who want to make learning to tell time fun, and will give children something to ponder." School Library Journal
Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Well known children's author Florence Parry Heide has teamed up with her two daughters to create this collection of poems about time. Each poem looks at a different aspect of time: telling time, measuring and comparing time, and pondering time, for example. Some of the poems are free verse and others are rhymed. Some are graphically composed while others are plainly typewritten. There's a tremendous amount of variety and food for thought in this slim, 14 poem, collection. And the illustrations of the elfin character who romps amongst the poems are in perfect sync with both the playful spirit and thoughtful mood of this timely collection.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 4-This inviting collection of poems encourages children to think imaginatively about time. The overall tone is light and humorous, and the book even includes a limerick. Imaginative graphics distinguish some poems, including "Now Is a Narrow Place," with its text in the shape of an hourglass. The selections are particularly suited to being read aloud. Brightly colored illustrations feature a blue-haired elf and lively puppy. These charming characters unify the collection, but are perhaps a bit too cute. This book will be a valuable resource for teachers who want to make learning to tell time fun, and will give children something to ponder.-Robin L. Gibson, Muskingum County Library System, Zanesville, OH Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
