Big Hand, Little Hand How to Tell Time is a rhyming picture book that teaches children how to tell time. In my opinion this is a great book. One reason I really enjoyed this book was that there was a big clock attached beneath the small flip book at the top. Children can manipulate the clock’s hands to make them match the small picture of the clock on each page in the story. For example, on the page with the rhyme about waking up the famer at quarter after six, there was a picture of the farmer sleeping, and on his bedside table there was a small alarm clock with the big hand on the three and the little hand on the six. Children can look at the small clock in the picture and move the hands on the large clock to match it. A second reason that I really liked this book was because it was a long rhyme about the day that goes chronologically from sunup to sundown. Each page contained a rhyme about a certain time of day. For example, the pages moved from waking up the sheep at six, to waking up the farmer at quarter after six, to eating breakfast at seven, and so on throughout the day. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764170201, Spiral-bound)

An appealing set of verses on half-size pages above a clock face with two movable hands is designed to teach toddlers how to tell time. The verses take them through the day, from 6 in the morning when it's time to wake up, until twelve o'clock midnight, when everyone is fast asleep. In between, children meet Farmer Fred, and the farm animals, as well as other friendly creatures who live nearby--a mouse, a porcupine, a pair of squirrels, and others. As preschool children follow the verses and look at the accompanying pictures, they can match the clock's hands with clocks in each charming full-color illustration. Before you know it, they'll understand how to tell the time of day!
