Time

Books about time



A great book that helps to explain time zones to children. It also shows a little bit of the culture in the cities shown.



A very sweet book showing the daily life of this bunny family.  Each page has a clock on it as well as a rhyming poem which explains the time and what the bunnies do during that time.



A great book that explains how time is related to the earth turning and revolving around the sun.

I love this puzzle clock for several reasons. One is because each number has a different shape which makes it easier to figure out where they go, helping the children to figure out the number placement on their own.  I like how the minute hand and hour hand are two different colors.  This made explaining and learning which one was which much easier for Zachary.  The final feature I'd like to point out is the numbers painted on the clock inside the puzzle pieces.  It has 1-12 and also 5-60 counting by 5s to assist in helping to learn the time.
