Teaching children about different time zones could be a lot of fun, as this book illustrates. I mean, how cool is it to imagine that while you're sitting at a desk in school, another child may be fast asleep at home or vice versa?
Using bright illustrations and very simple text, the reader is able to get a look into what life is like in different parts of the world. At 10pm in Alaska, a child is reading a bedtime story, while all the way in Nigeria, it is 9am and a child is getting dressed for their day. While you are waving goodbye to friends in Japan at 5pm, someone in Mexico is fast asleep at 2am. Fun!
Each page features a small map featuring the first country mentioned and the time of day, as well as a lift-the-flap of a visual and a clock featuring the time in the other country. The very last pages include a world map and a small block of text explaining time zones and how they work. Interactive and beautifully illustrated!
Great for classroom or homeschooling!
