* Reviews *

A part of the Puppy and Kitten Math series, this nonfiction text presents adorable photos of these animals as it explains the process of telling time, beginning with an explanation of clocks with and without faces. Telling time by the hour and half hour follows this information. Several pages are devoted to reading and writing the time on digital clocks. A section titled Time for Puppies and Kittens begins with puppies eating breakfast at 9:00 and follows both puppies and kittens through the day until it is time for bed at 8:00. Inserts of pictures of two clocks on most pages show how to write and say the indicated time. A Time for Activities page suggests keeping a log of your day and making a clock collage. Several books and web sites are listed on a Learn More page. A table of contents, Words to Know page, and a short index are included. This book with its appealing pictures and logical text should be very helpful when teaching children the skill of telling time., Children's Literature
