1 Second 1 Minute 1 Siecle | 一秒一分一世纪
Author: Catherine Grive
Translated from: France
Have you ever felt this way? A few seconds waiting for the elevator feels like an eternity while a two hours movie is over in a flash?
How long is 1 second, 3 minutes and a century? The numbers on your watch won't be able to tell you the answer, so let's grasp the concept of time with this interesting book!
Every turn of the page conveys the concept of time in a fun mix of science, fact, humour and imagination. Interesting, funny and mind-boggling, you simply can't stop reading.
Most children don't really grasp the concept of time until much older like 7 years old and above, hence trying to make them understand and tell time can be an exasperating experience. This book uses real examples of our daily lives to allow children to conceptualize time eg. 1 second - is how long you take to flip a page; 1 minute - is how long you take a pee and 1 year is how long you need to wait between two birthdays.
Concept of time is further reinforced by associating it with accomplishing tasks within a time frame eg, 3 seconds - is how long a mother takes tobutton her shirt and 3 minutes - is how long firemen take to get ready for a rescue mission. Snippets of fun facts added in make the book an interesting and funny read for young kids.
Suitable for 3-6 years old, this is a book where knowledge and fun all rolled into one, helping young children to develop good sense of time and good use of time.
