I loved this book!! Mentioned East Chicago, where we live. So yay!! My kids weren't as into it. The illustrstions are way too dark for nighttime reading. They couldn't see the pictures. So of course they were bored. We haven't read it since the first day. Oh well.
Let's admit it, time zones can be confusing to our young ones & even to some of us older ones. This delightful book does a good job of explaining how whilst some folks are sleeping, some others are waking up & some are going about their day.
Time Zone maps are at both the front & the end of the book.
This book was recommended to go along with our Geography curriculum & I am glad we purchased it. It is certainly one we will be keeping in our library.
I bought this book, after it was recommended by my teacher-daughter, to share with the little ones in the family. It's wonderful! Beautiful illustrations and an excellent introduction to a complex concept.
