How to Tell TimeSpring 2006 Toys
Ages: 4 & Up
Review:This is an easy-to-understand illustrated guide to telling time with an analog wrist watch (or what the book calls “the regular kind”). There's also a picture of “the other kind” which is captioned “digital,” but no further mention of it. The real wrist watch that comes with the book can be set by simply pressing the “winder stem” and holding it until the hands show the correct time. The battery keeps it operating accurately from then on. In addition to step-by-step instructions on reading the hour hand and the minute hand, there are also references to abstract concepts about time: things that take about an hour, and about one minute, as well as time that seem longer (if you're waiting) or shorter (if you're having fun) than their actual time.
