A Second is a Hiccup: A Child's Book of Time
There's never been a more charming explanation of time for young readers.
"How long is a second?"
"A second is a hiccup--the time it takes to kiss your mom, or jump a rope, or turn around."
The newest book by acclaimed picture-book creators Hazel Hutchins and Kady McDonald Denton explains units of time in imaginative terms children can understand: A second lasts as long as a hiccup; a week is seven sleeps; and a year is the time it takes to grown into new shoes!
Any parent who's been asked, "How long is a minute?" or any kid who's wondered, "What does 'an hour' mean?" will enjoy this smart, simple, and surprising book.
