A simple, easy-to-read clock face is built into this large, sturdy board book, and is visible through a circular cutout from whichever page you open. Original Beatrix Potter illustrations adorn the pages, and each has a different question-and-answer related to telling time. ("What time is it? It's 2 o'clock. Move the little hand to the 2 and the big hand to the 12. At two o'clock, Pigling Bland and Alexander are going to market.") Other characters include that old scoundrel Peter himself, Mrs. Tiggy-winkle, Hunca-Munca, and Mr. Jeremy Fisher. The clock has large black numbers from 1 to 12 and easily positioned black plastic hour and minute hands. A final page tests new time-telling skills with a further series of illustrated questions. (Ages 3 to 5) --Richard FarrAbout the Author:
Beatrix Potter is one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902) she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs Tiggy-winkle, Mr Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood.A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.
