Bear Against Time (Hardcover)
Readers can learn how to tell time and why it matters with this cleverly humorous new picture book from the best-selling creators of 365 Penguins.
Bear can’t tell time and it’s causing chaos for the human family he lives with. He botches breakfast, he’s late for school, he swaps music with gym class, and he misses lunch, too. When his time-management skills land him in a sticky situation, the family decides enough is enough. Using a 12-piece pizza pie, they teach Bear how to read a clock. Suddenly, time is on Bear’s side: he’s punctual, aces his classes, and fills his schedule with volunteer work and sports practices. But it isn’t long before this bear begins to burn out....
Jean-Luc Fromental’s engaging writing and Joëlle Jolivet’s signature retro design combine in this lighthearted and accessible book on the importance and how-tos of telling time.
