Around the World in the Blink of an Eye Book
Around the World in the Blink of an Eye transports readers across the globe, one hour at a time, discovering what children are doing throughout the day. Through stunning artwork from artists of each country, this book offers opportunities to learn about the global community and how we are connected.
While teaching the notion of time zones, this book reminds us of the similarities in a child’s day, no matter where they live, that makes us so much the same, while embracing the cultures and landscapes that account for our differences.
