K-Gr 3—At six o'clock in the morning in Dakar, Senegal, Keita helps his father count the fish caught during night. So begins a tale of events happening at the same moment all around the world. From the Greenwich meridian eastward, full circle back to Senegal, Perrin takes readers on a voyage of events in 24 time zones where children are conducting their everyday activities. Mitko, in Bulgaria, chases after the school bus; Chen, in Shanghai, practices for the Lunar New Year parade at 2:00; and Pablo, in Mexico City, is having magical dreams at midnight. Each hour presents a unique cultural experience of normalcy in the lives of children and their families. Stunning, digitally enhanced ink illustrations depict the variety of landscapes, architecture, clothing, and customs of a diverse world, yet all portray what is recognizably the same in all children's lives. A large, pull-out world map reveals each time zone and the children shown in the story. A lovely addition to a study of time zones or an exploration of cultural diversity—Carol Connor, Cincinnati Public Schools, OH
Beginning with Keita helping his father count fish in Senegal (at Greenwich mean time) and then moving eastward around the globe, this French import introduces readers to children living in each of the original 24 time zones. Readers meet, for example, Sofia, chasing after the school bus in Bulgaria; Ivan, taking his dog for a walk in Russia; baby Diego, newly born in Peru; and Chloe, dancing on the deck of a mid-Atlantic cruise ship. Perrin’s rich digital artwork is very effective; particularly appealing is her use of lit interiors to highlight nighttime activities. Each narrow vertical spread features two time zones, and alert readers will note that the first and last spreads are the same, bringing the book (and the day) full circle. Appended with an author’s note about time zones and a fold-out map locating each child’s home, this will find a niche in several curricular areas. Grades K-3. --Kay Weisman

It is such a shame that more attention wasn't paid to important details. For example, you only see the carp flags in Japan in May while Chinese New Year celebrations take place between January and February.
How disappointing to mar such a good book with such correctable issues.
