A story about a man who thinks his clock is off so he spends time buying more clocks, but when he gets them they become different times. An interesting book to teach the concept of time.

Ages 5-8

A man believes that his clocks are incorrect and so he keeps buying more, each a little more off (or so it seems...) than the last. Good introduction of the concept that time passes, but the story may be too sophisticated for some younger children.

Clocks and more clocks is about a man who buys many clocks because he is not sure which one is right. He places the clocks in different rooms of the house and walks into a different room realizing that the clocks do not have the same time. This is a good book for children to learn about time. Also children can draw conclusions on why the man assumes his clocks do not work. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689717695, Paperback)

When the hall clock reads twenty minutes past four, the attic clock reads twenty-three minutes past four, the kitchen clock reads twenty-five minutes past four, and the bedroom clock reads twenty-six minutes past four, what should Mr. Higgins do? He can't tell which of his clocks tells the right time. He is in for a real surprise when the Clockmaker shows him that they are all correct!

Not one of Mr. Higgins' four clocks kept the correct time until the Clockmaker assured him they were all correct.
