Tick Tock Clock
Written by Margery Cuyler
Illustrated by Robert Neubecker
HarperCollins Children's Books, c2012. 29 pages. Easy reader.
Impish twin girls spend all day with their grandmother, and each hour is packed with happenings. The girls have a new adventure or escapade every hour, on the hour. At each "o'clock," they do such things as eating on the dock or playing with blocks. At the end of the day, after mom picks them up, grandma says goodbye and falls asleep like a rock! What I love about this book is that it's very repetitive, and teaches time, rhyming, and vowel sounds. Though short on words, Tick Tock Clock is full of energy. It's a solid easy reader that will appeal to brand new, mischievous readers.
