How Do You Measure Time? introduces children to measuring time with both clocks and calendars. Readers meet seven-year-old Ann and see how time affects her life. This informative book is appropriate for children in kindergarten through second grade. Using simple text and color photographs, the authors do an excellent job of explaining units of time and how they relate to one another. They show both shorter and longer units – from seconds to years – and reinforce them throughout the book. They also explain that at times a minute can seem short; whereas at other times, it can feel much longer, depending on the situation. The end of the book includes interesting time facts, a glossary of time-related words, a small list of related books, and a code that can be used to access additional information at Overall, this book is a great resource to have for teaching time to younger students.
