My Busy Day

Young children love talking about the familiar minutiae of their lives, and My Busy Day uses this enthusiasm to introduce youngsters to complex notions of time, including how we measure and compare it, by running through one girl’s daily routine. On each spread there is plenty to discuss, with a hidden timepiece to find, as well as a ‘window on the world’ – an inset circular illustration linking what is happening on the page to concurrent events elsewhere, cleverly demonstrating to children that many things can go on simultaneously, even when they aren’t there. Some helpful suggestions for related activities are included with the ‘notes for adults’ at the back.
