Little Bees, from educational publisher Wayland, are informative picture books designed to encourage young children to explore and question the world around them. Tick, Tock deals admirably with the rather abstract concept of ‘time’, putting it into familiar contexts and getting across the essential facts about the way we measure it with clear, simple language and engaging illustrations. Sharing the title with your preschoolers is likely to lead both to lively discussion and inspiration for activities – for example, you could have a lot of fun discovering just what can be achieved in a minute; making your own sun dials; or creating artwork based around different clock faces.
