Overview


Kids can learn how to tell time with a big, foldout, moveable clock-both analog and digital-and a funny story about how sharks spend their day!

At eight o'clock in the ocean flow,
Whale sharks wake, get dressed, and go.

Silly sharks have a very full day in this rhyming, interactive book that features a foldout, movable clock! At ten o'clock, they learn their 1, 2, 3's. At eleven o'clock, they play in a band. At four o'clock they learn water ballet. The clock opens out to accompany every page and shows both analog and digital time. Delana Bettoli's beautiful illustrations perfectly capture the humor of these wonderful sharks!

Illustrator Delana Bettoli's anthropomorphic illustrations make time-telling even more fun!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Telling time is one of those major milestones in growing up. Suddenly the clock makes sense and the hours have meaning. In this large format book, there is a clock cut out with two hands that shows through the cover. Little fingers can easily change the hours and minutes. As the hands move into the appropriate positions shown on the pages, the time is also displayed in numeric form. The text is described as silly, and it is. A variety of anthropomorphic sharks are shown involved in activities at various times of the day. At 8 am whale sharks wake, get dressed, and head out to school. A clock is located in the corner of each scene to show the time. It is also written out. In addition to learning to tell time, readers will learn the names of a variety of sharks and other marine life. However, it does ignore the fact that sharks would probably make a meal of some of them. Kids could work with an adult to set the clock to specific times, thus extending the lesson. The book is sturdy and should hold up to repeated use. 2005, Scholastic, Ages 4 to 7.
