It's About Time!
a MathStart series book


by Stuart Murphy; illustrated by John Speirs

In It's About Time, children learn how to read clocks as they watch a young boy engaged in various activities throughout the day (including dreaming during the nighttime hours).

Each page includes a cute pencil drawings, a short line or two of text, and an analog and digital clock showing the time. The storyline is very simple--it's just 'a day in his life'--but for children learning to read clocks, it can be quite helpful. As with all MathStart books, the final spread includes suggested activities to use with this book as well as other activities for teaching children how to read clocks.  

Interest Levels:   Preschool - 2nd grade

Below are the first few spreads from inside It's About Time.  All illustrations follow this same format--a cute illustration showing what the little boy does at various times during the day, paired with short text and an analog and digital clock showing the time of day.  It's a simple concept, but effective too!
