It's storming out and the birds find shelter in what looks like a museum. The two birds are flying around through the dinosaurs skeletons. Then the birds fly from the dark skeletons to bright live dinosaurs. As you go through this book you can see the birds imagining the skeletons coming back to life. You can see the dinosaurs in their habitats. As the birds fly more around everything goes back to normal. This book is a vivid reminder in how fast time flies by. One day there were dinosaurs and now they are extinct. Time flies makes you use your imagination! ( )

This beautifully illustrated book is about a bird's imaginative journey through an exhibit at a natural history museum. The title mirrors the bird flying through time, imagining what it would have been like when the dinosaurs were living. It is a creative book and children who love dinosaurs will be intrigued by it. I wish the author had added a page with pictures and names of the dinosaurs. Children might enjoy learning the names. I can tell children like this book by the number of times it has been checked out and the amount of tape on some of the pages! (unless it is the same child checking it out every time..) ( )

The illustrations in this book were absolutely AMAZING. I love how this book gave perspective to readers from the bird's point of view. I'd love to read this during a unit on dinosaurs just as an introduction. AMAZING ILLUSTRATIONS! ( )

This book doesn't have any words, but the pictures make up their own story. Time flies shows simply that: time passing by through years and years. It does this by displaying a bird going through time back to the dinosaur ages. ( )

An interesting play on words of the title. The bird goes into a museum that contains an exhibit of dinosaurs and flies through time. As the bird flies among the exhibit, the dinosaurs become alive and the world become prehistoric again. A good look of how dinosaurs once looked and lived.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0517885557, Paperback)

Eric Rohmann's Caldecott Honor-winning debut is now available as a Dragonfly paperback. It is at once a wordless time-travel adventure and a meditation on the scientific theory that dinosaurs were the evolutionary ancestors of birds.  

Time Flies , a wordless picture book, is inspired by the theory that birds are the modern relatives of dinosaurs.  This story conveys the tale of a bird trapped in a dinosaur exhibit at a natural history museum.  Through Eric's use of color, readers can actually see the bird enter into a mouth of a dinosaur, and then escape unscathed.

The New York Times Book Review called Time Flies "a work of informed imagination and masterly storytelling unobtrusively underpinned by good science...an entirely absorbing narrative made all the more rich by its wordlessness." Kirkus Reviews hailed it as "a splendid debut."
