Sandra J. Hookham

Author Sandra J. Hookhamabout this book: This book is designed for teaching young children to easily learn to tell time by making it fun (K-3). Done in rhythmical, easy to remember verse with lots of practice clocks for every segment. Full color (60 pages). 93% of all the words used in this book are at or below first grade level. Of that 93%, 73% are kindergarten or below with a child-friendly glossary explaining the more advanced words. All wording used in the definitions are at or below first grade level.

There are 68 four-line stanzas, 14 beautiful illustrations, and 54 vividly enhanced practice clocks.

Verse one begins with:

Midnight to noon equals noon to midnight,
And that's how the hours go;
The short, fat hand turns to the right,
Counting the hours which move so sow.

Then later:

Just as the minute hand completes a round
In every hour of the day,
For each minute the second hand is bound
To make the circle all the way.

And on to:

A.M. passes through All Morning,
Until at noon the hands both rest;
And P.M. naturally goes Past Morning,
Headed toward midnight so darkly dressed.

Midnight to Noon = Noon to Midnight is inviting and entertaining, but most of all it is educational--cleverly disguising work as play and thinking as fun.
