Summary
" ... explains units of time in imaginative terms children can understand: A second lasts as long as a hiccup; a week is seven sleeps; and a year is the time it takes to grown into new shoes! Any parent who's been asked, "How long is a minute?" or any kid who's wondered, "What does 'an hour' mean?" will enjoy this smart, simple, and surprising book."--BIP
Summary
Provides an examination of the concept of time through amusing verse and bright illustrations that highlight the differences between quantities of time throughout a life
