A Second is a Hiccup: A Child's Book of Time, by Hazel Hutchins

Illus. by Kady Macdonald Denton

How long is a second, a minute, an hour, a day, a week, a month, and a year? These common units of time are explained relative to each other and to events in a young child's life. Watercolor illustrations depict young children from two families in this appealing introduction or summary to time lessons.

Grades K-2

Multi-ethnic characters populate the illustrations in this simple book about time. It should be very useful in teaching time concepts to young children.

Second. Time is such an abstract concept to explain to young children yet this book does it in an inviting, whimsical way. The illustrations remind me of Peter Spier's work.
