Reference Sunday: The Time Book

We have all heard the saying " Time Flys"~ well that seems true yet again. Here it is Labor Day weekend 2009 and I am wondering where the summer went. The book I want to talk about today is a clever book about time!

The Time Book: A Brief History from Lunar Calendars to Atomic Clocks by Martin Jenkins Illus by Richard Bolland is a artfully presented book on what "time" is.

It explores how time is measured and talks about early calendars....something that might seem like a dry subject but is told in a funny and interesting way with quirky illustrations.

I know kids (like my nephew Alex) who love to read information books better than novels....this should appeal to them.
