What Wee Read
At the Same Moment Around the World by Clotilde Perrin
Our preschoolers are fascinated with time zones, and no picture book better illustrates the concept. Gorgeous pictures depict scenarios occurring at the same moment. Benedict drinking his morning hot chocolate in Paris, France; Mitko chasing the school bus in Sofia, Bulgaria; Pablo having magical dreams in Mexico City. The stories are lovely and beautiful and warm. There’s a fold-out world map in the back that highlights the scenarios. And in case you’re asked, Why were time zones created? or How many time zones are there in the world?, there’s a page of facts that covers kids’ toughest questions.
