Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
Although this is one of the "DK Readers" books, I don't think it's appropriate for beginning readers, even level 2 readers. I think it's more appropriate for older children, perhaps grades 2 or even 3.

In any case, it's an interesting book about how people have kept track of time, mostly throughout a period of a day. It charts different technological advances and notable pioneers in timekeeping throughout history and is fascinating, even for adults. It has lots of facts, photographs and pictures

Book Title: Telling Time by Patricia J. Murphy

Book Description: This book gives the history of time. It explains how people told time before clocks and then introduces how clocks were made. On the first page it explains that time has been important to people for years and how it helps them to plan their day.

Focus for my minilessons:
• After reading the text, I would demonstrate how we can use a flow map to organize the information in a sequential manner. To help them understand sequential order

This is a book about the history of telling time and history of clocks, not about how to tell time.
