Finding a book that spoke to his interests was much more useful than any books with morals and villains and heroes have been.

Finding a book that spoke to his interests was much more useful than any books with morals and villains and heroes have been. Clocks and More Clocks provides a mathematical riddle inherent in the story of why your clocks change time from room to room and the plot resolves itself nicely when a clock maker comes and saves the day by providing an explanation.

Clocks and More Clocks book. I love Pat Hutchins and children love her too. Any child that is just beginning to understand clocks, and time, will get great pleasure from this book. It is funny and warm.

A clock on each of the four floors and none of them tells the same time! Or so thinks Mr. Higgins as he. . Higgins as he dashes from hall - ""Twenty minutes past four"" - up to attic - ""twenty-three minutes past four"" - down two flights to kitchen - ""twenty-five minutes past four"" - and up one to bedroom - ""twenty-six minutes past four.

When the hall clock reads twenty minutes past four, the attic clock reads twenty-three minutes past four, the kitchen clock reads twenty-five minutes past four, and the bedroom clock reads twenty-six minutes past four, what should Mr. Higgins do? He can't tell which of his clocks tells the right time.

Read the wacky adventures of Mr. Higgins, a man who cannot make his clocks keep time no matter how frequently he runs up and down the stairs to test them. The story is very simple and has a repetitive quality which will appeal to a reader who likes prediction of an outcome. I bought this book because my autistic son is obsessed with clocks, calendars and measures of time. He also hates to read. Finding a book that spoke to his interests was much more useful than any books with morals and villains and heroes have been. Clocks and More Clocks provides a mathematical riddle inherent in the story of why your clocks change time from room to room and the plot resolves itself nicely when a clock maker comes and saves the day by providing an explanation. The only reason I did not give the book a five-star rating is because the artwork, though detailed and clever, is less colorful than I would expect for a children's book aimed at a younger audience. I was also surprised to see it had been written in 1994 when I was expecting it to be from the early 70's based on the design and colors used. Otherwise, I highly recommend this for young readers, and particularly readers who like clocks, time and mathematics interwoven into their story lines.

My 18-month-old grandson is obsessed with clocks, so I was searching for a book with lots of clock pictures vs. one that teaches how to tell time. This book fit the bill--every page has numerous pictures of clocks, and we spend hours reading it. In fact, he wore it out so I need to get another one.

My son is fascinated by clocks and has definitely picked up on telling time, but this story is a great way to show that time does not stand still. We discussed how we have clocks in many rooms too, but not as beautiful and ornate as in this story.

We bought this book to help with time lessons for our homeschooled children. It must be something about the storyline or the illustrations but, my children love this book. And the concept of passing time was easily understood after exploring and reading this book.

My son is fascinated by mechanical clocks so we bought him this as a christmas gift. He loves the story and we can read in in five minutes before bedtime. Excellent.
Fun childrens book.
