It's time for another I.Q. adventure.
I.Q.'s class is going to have a busy day. Not only do the students have to do all of their regular work, but they have to prepare the classroom for Parents' Night!
Luckily, Mrs. Furber is also teaching the students everything about telling time. Using all kinds of timekeepers: analog and digital; wall clocks, wristwatches, and stopwatches―they learn the difference between the minute hand and the hour hand, how to count by fives, and the number of hours in a day. I.Q. really wants to make a special surprise for the parents. But will he have time to finish his surprise before Parents' Night begins?
I.Q.'s determination will motivate young readers to tackle this essential skill with excitement and joy.

PreSchool-K–The classroom pet featured in I.Q. Goes to School (2002) and I.Q. Goes to the Library (2003, both Walker) is now helping Mrs. Furber's students prepare for Parents' Night. With a digital clock prominently displayed on each page, the endearing mouse takes readers along on an hour-by-hour journey as the children learn about hour and minute hands, counting by fives, and the number of seconds in a minute. I.Q. continues to keep time even after school lets out as he tries to finish his special project before Parents' Night begins at seven–a large clock with a stick figure by each hour telling what happens in the child's day at that time. An analog teaching clock, a wristwatch, and stopwatch are used throughout the story to show different ways of telling time, but the digital clock, instead of a conventional variety, is the main focus as I.Q. tells when it's time for lunch, stories, and recess. Nonetheless, the pencil, gouache, and pen-and-ink cartoons are inviting and children will enjoy this amusing look at a school day as seen through the eyes of a mouse.–Kristine M.
