by Bruce Koscielniak
interesting look at how time has been measured in different periods of
world history. We're not so sure about that subtitle, as this book is intended for middle grades, so it certainly won't be a "first" look at time and clocks. But anyway... :)
Topics covered include the first time pieces, the creation of the Gregorian calendar, different types of clocks used in different cultures (ie: Egyptian shadow clocks up to twentieth century electric clocks).
School Library Journal
ended their review of this book by saying, "Children will be
entertained as well as informed by this presentation." And Booklist said
"Students beyond the 'telling time' stage will find this an attractive
introduction to the broader subject of time."
