Summary
A lyrical multicultural picture book that introduces the concept of time zones.

As one little boy is eating breakfast in San Francisco, another kid in London is playing football with his mates, a girl in Harare is eating dinner with her family, and another child in Sydney is calling for a drink of water in the middle of the night. Poetic language and charming vignettes simplify the concept of time zones by providing glimpses into the everyday lives of children around the world.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Time travel isn't science fiction in this lively contemporary picture book that talks about the scientific facts of time zones and what they mean in daily life. On each spread, lively scenarios show what children are doing at the same time across the globe. When Jared is having breakfast at six a.m. in San Francisco, Oliver shoots a soccer goal at two p.m. in London, and at one a.m. in Sydney, Alkira is wide awake, waiting for his dad to get home from his taxi shift. The diversity and connections across the globe are the story, with warm, colorful, individual portraits that move beyond cultural stereotypes. Even the debut author and Steptoe Award-winning illustrator are part of the story: Omololu's husband's family in Nigeria is eight time zones away from her North California home. DuBurke lives in Switzerland, which is six time zones away from New York City, where he grew up. With clocks on every page, a world map, and scientific notes on longitude, this is a great choice for science classes and for today's international families.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2009 Booklist"
