Mouse Tells the Time

Overview

"How do you tell the time?" Mouse asks his animal friends. "If it's light, it's day, and if it's dark, it's night," says Hedgehog. "With dandelion clocks," say the Rabbit twins. "With an hour glass," says Grandma Mole. But poor Mouse is left feeling more confused than ever by all these explanations. Luckily, Mother Mouse knows the answer. Lift the flap on the last page to see what little Mouse does next! A friendly and encouraging story that young children will turn to again and again.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-How do animals tell time? Do they need a clock? Mouse is truly confused. Sunlight, darkness, shadows, dandelions, or an hourglass all seem to work well for Squirrel, Hedgehog, and Rabbit, but Mouse wants to use numbers and clocks when hunger pains don't alert him to lunch and dinner. A watercolor palette of warm earth tones frames an endearing mouse, his mother, and friends in full-page art. Illustrations reflect both text action and the emotions of the characters. Young readers will find both ample visual clues to Mouse's activities during his quest and watercolor representations of animal habitats. A final foldout page shows four clocks indicating important hours in Mouse's day. Simplicity of art and text action results in a practical and attractive addition to picture-book collections.-Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Time is a difficult concept for children, one that doesn't get any easier with the reading of this tale. Young Mouse cannot wait to learn how to tell time. As he encounters different forest animals, he asks them, "How do you tell the time?" Hedgehog judges light and dark to determine if it's day or night. This answer doesn't satisfy Mouse. Squirrel looks at the lengths of the shadows, and which way they are pointing. Mouse doesn't know east from west, and gives up this method when the sun goes behind a cloud. The Rabbit twins blow dandelions and end up telling Mouse it is two different times of day. And Grandma Mole has an hourglass that tells her when it is one hour later than it was before. Still confused and now hungry, Mouse returns home, where Mother tells him that time is not as hard as he thinks. If he is hungry it must be suppertime, sleepy, it must be bedtime. But she does promise to teach him to use a clock the following day. A foldout page at the end pictures Mouse and a clock as he goes through his daily routine. The watercolor illustrations are marvelous, capturing the greens and browns of nature, and portraying the forest animals realistically. Unfortunately, the story is not one for aspiring clock watchers. (Picture book. 4-7)
