It's not often when reading children's books that I read something that I wish I had growing up. The Book of Time was that good. As I turned every page, I felt like a child again. My love of learning and curiosity thrived. I can't wait for my children to be old enough to share it with them.

From the big bang to world records, types of clocks, and architecture over time, this book has something for everyone. Each 2-page spread covers a separate topic, so it's easy to pick and choose where a child's interest lies and add this to a history or science lesson. The illustrations nicely complement the text while being realistic and accurate. It's a book I can see myself coming back to again and again.

Recommended age: 10-12 years (Late elementary to middle school)

Writing style: Each page is broken into short blurbs, about a paragraph long. Because it's a book on time and history, there are a lot of numbers and years listed. It may help to reinforce the comparisons between them.

Lexile range (unofficial): 1010L - 1200L
Sentence length: 5/5
Word frequency: 3/5

Illustration style: The illustrations by Teo Georgiev are vivid, colorful, and clear. They link directly to the facts presented through the use of arrows, timelines, and text backgrounds.

Reality-based: The Book of Time covers the history and science around time and clocks.

More than trivia, less than an encyclopedia. A book for EVERYONE!
Learn about so many aspects of time and perception of time as you read together and enjoy the vivid illustrations by Teo Georgiev which are delightful, imaginative, clear, and colorful.
Well suited for reading WITH someone of any age including ESL, and great for gifting to anyone, but especially to a school or your public library!
I requested and received a free temporary e-book on Adobe Digital Editions from Quarto Publishing Group/words & pictures via NetGalley. Thank you!… (més)
