Telling Time: How to Tell Time on Digital and Analog Clocks
Time isn't an easy concept for kids to grasp, but young readers will delight in learning all about it with the fun and lively lessons in TELLING TIME.

With Megan Halsey's fresh, fun, and playful illustrations, telling time is a breeze. Imaginative digital and analog clocks adorn page after page with cuckoos, in the shape of boats, with alarm bells, and more. You won't want to miss a second of Telling Time.

  1. Mama to 4

    Our almost 6 year old has been wanting to be able to tell time for the past year. We’ve tried many different manipulatives with not much luck past the o’clocks and X:30. After reading this book just once, she’s now actually telling time on analog clocks. It’s slow going, but she really gets it now. Our daughter LOVES the poem at the end. It also covers calendar time – from one day to a millenium.The book is VERY interactive in the way it’s written when the parent reads to the child. My only complaint is that it’s never explained about what hour it is when the hour hand is between numbers or almost on the next number….

    This is a very colorful and detailed book. I would say this book is more for 6-9 year olds…written a little wordy but does get the point across. Takes a while to read at night to my 5 year old – and to keep him concentrated on it….

    My son was having trouble learning how to read the minute hands. The outer numbers were confusing him. This was the perfect tool to help him understand that even though the number on the clock says 6 that is 30 minutes etc. I would reccomend. The little stand piece did not work well but did not matter….

    I teach 3rd grade and take this book out every year. The book teaches children how to read both digital and analog clocks and discusses calendar time as well. As a teacher, I pull out relevant information and only read excerpts of the book to my students aloud. The book would be a rather long read as a read-aloud….

    Excellent tool for teaching children to tell time. My grandson loves it and has made remarkable progress learning to tell time (of course,I am sure he is smarter than average). What helps is he finds it fun and not a chore….


    It was well done, however, it went into much greater detail than necessary for a child first learning how to tell time. It is a book that can be used as a reference as a child’s comprehension improves, though, in order to tackle greater complexities, i.e., how many minutes in a year . . . ….

    REALLY long and a bit drawn out as many of the other reviews say. I definitely don’t see myself sitting down and gettign through a whole read with my 3 and 4 year old, BUT if you read this in sections or “units” it lends itself to that and when broken up in this way could easily hold young attention and be very helpful to their understanding. Also the illustrations are simple and easy for them to grasp alongside the concepts this book teaches. A great homeschooling resource for us. I also purchased My Own Little Judy Clock with Booklet as well as the Judy clock worksheet book to go along with this and think all together these products will help teach my little ones to tell time in no time!…

    This was a great book to introduce time and calendar. However my four year old was unable to keep up. The book is packed with facts (and cute humor) but it was too much for her and she became distracted quickly. I would recommenced this book for a 5-7 year old or a bright five year old. So for now i will put it on my shelf and will bring it back down later. :)…
