What is time? How does it work? And is it even real? The book uses time as a lens to explore a wide variety of STEAM subjects that kids know and love-such as space, dinosaurs, animals, the human body, and machinery-with a completely fresh perspective.

Through a simple yet fascinating approach, you'll learn about:

  • The measurements of time
  • Big and small time

  • Paradoxes
  • And lots more mind-boggling things
Cool, graphic illustrations help convey sometime abstract concepts and make for an engrossing reading experience. Children will be able to wow and amaze all their family and friends with extensive and fascinating information about time.

Absorbing, entertaining, and surprising, The Book of Time will teach kids to look at the world in a whole new way.
