Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-A little girl approaching her seventh birthday introduces children to the elements of time from seconds to minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years, using concrete examples from her life to illustrate the concepts. She can write an invitation to her party in a minute and it takes one hour to make a birthday cake. Brief discussions of a Viking ship, a photo of her great-great-grandpa, and her mother's wedding dress represent more abstract concepts such as millennium, century, and decade. Colorful, childlike drawings reinforce the explanations, and the back flyleaf presents a chart reviewing the concepts. A serviceable title.-Joyce Rice, Limestone Creek Elementary School, Jupiter, FL Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
