Resource Description

This engaging picture book starts at Greenwich Mean Time in Senegal and, travelling eastward, follows children in different parts of the world and shows what they are doing at that very same moment in each of Earth’s twenty-four time zones. As readers travel through each time zone they see how the world is connected at that moment, and also learn about the climate, weather, architecture, animals, and activities in each region. Also included are a pull-out map that identifies the location of each character in the story and information about the invention of time zones and timekeeping. A useful read-aloud to introduce K-3 students to the concept of time zones and simultaneous difference. Log in to read the full ERAC review.
