What can you do in a second? Did you know that in one second a bat can make 200 high-pitched calls? In one minute, a hungry horned lizard can eat 45 ants? And in one hour, a human adult takes about 900 breaths? These are just a few of the fascinating facts that illustrate the relativity of time in a way children can grasp.
Award-winning author/illustrator Steve Jenkins impresses us with this unique presentation of time and history that can serve as a springboard for a child’s own exploration (perhaps with a stopwatch) of how much time different activities take. Hardcover, 34 pages. Ages 6 and up.
