This story profiles 10 different places around the world highlighting different time zones and different cultures The author Omololu gives readers a glimpse into global cultures and lifestyles all while teaching about time zones While the book definitely has multicultural themes relating to geography raceethnicity religion food etc the author intentionally draws upon humanizing characteristics of the global characters presented in the book Omololu presents diversity in a not so foreign way making different cultures and lifestyles accessible and acceptable for lack of a better word for children The illustrations back up mirror such diversity including the use of darker skin toned characters in seemingly predominantly white countries ie AustraliaI would reccommend this book for any and all children The educational aspect of the book might be good for children aged 4 8 as they are learning to tell time

Characters Ó When It's Six O'Clock in San Francisco: A Trip Through Time Zones Ê PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free A lyrical multicultural picture book that introduces the concept of time zonesAs one little boy is eating breakfast in San Francisco another kid in London is. Arg Concept books They re dangerous dealings A concept book is meant to have a single purpose to inform If they amuse that s nice but it s not why they were invented And because you need a good author to make a basic concept easy and understandable to kids a lot of topics go unanswered on library and bookstore shelves Until this moment in time if someone had walked up to my reference desk and asked Do you have a good easy concept book about time zones they would have gotten a front row seat to the show that is my gaping fish like mouth As it happens even adults don t have many books to choose from when it comes to discussing that particular topic It s just a concept that doesn t get a whole lot of play even though parents traveling with children or who have family far away need a way of explaining to their kids why time isn t the same time all around the world Cynthia Jaynes Omololu s When It s Six o Clock in San Francisco fills a need and does a jolly good job of it tooIt is six o clock in San Francisco and Jared has just woken up to drink his cocoa for the day As he does this it s nine o clock in Montreal and Genevieve and her father are taking a slippery sliding way to school that neither of them expected As they do that it s eleven o clock in Santiago and so on With each new time zone the reader is introduced to new characters and new storylines Whether they re scoring goals in London asking for a last drink of water in Sydney or tearing up over spicy food in Lahore everyone around the world is doing something different Backmatter shows the different zones on a map with information on how they workOmololu opts for a story to help kids understand time zones This works as a series of short tales but has resulted in some cataloging confusions For example because the Library of Congress designated this a work of fiction we shelve this story in our picture book section Personally I think it would do just fine in the non fiction section as well After all that s where we put our The Magic School Bus concept books and it doesn t seem to confuse anyone all that much I d love to slot this in the 808838762 section sometime That s the librarian in meNow at the end of this book is a two page factual section that shows a map of the world the time zones and text explaining how seasons distance and the tilt and spin of the Earth affect these zones It s a little wordy so it s probably best to read it to those older kids studying up on the same subject Little kids on the other hand will benefit from seeing on the map where each city is and figuring out its time from that Expect to do a lot of backing and forthing between the stories and the map as a result It got me to thinking that a small map of the world with each new city and time zone at the bottom of the pages wouldn t have been out of place If the map appeared with a colored bar for each zone kids would better be able to understand that when it s one time here it s another time there The clocks at the bottom of the page do cover this to some extent but I feel that a continuous map would have been cool tooRandy DuBurke makes for an interesting complement to Omololu s text Because this is a book written for a younger crowd the publisher could have paired this story with a cartoonish artist DuBurke in contrast has opted for a realistic bent Storylines are broken up into panels with a text up above Sometimes the storylines demand a two page spread to end the story Sometimes all you get are three or four panels It s almost like a graphic novel in this way but I feel like speech bubbles would be completely wrong for a layout like this Best to just look as them like scenes from short filmsI did find myself wondering if kids would find the vast array of characters that exist without connection disjointed You leap from one narrative to another pretty fast here I was glad to see that the storyline of Jared in San Francisco works out That gives the book a kind of conclusion that it needed The book might lend itself to a fun writing assignment actually You could tell your kids to choose one of the stories in this book and write a conclusion for it Will Nkosi in Cape Town buy the washing powder his mother wants like she told him to or will he blow it all on CDs Will Keilana in Honolulu convince her mother to let her stay up or will she lose this battle and be forced back to bed There are a lot of options here A lot of optionsEven grown ups shouldn t feel smug when it comes to understanding time zones For example what happens when some of the world experiences daylight savings What then As I mentioned before books on the subject are few and far between though interestingly there s another one by David Adler slated to come out in 2010 You re lucky if you can find something coherent on the subject let alone engaging Omololu has covered her bases all the way through the story saying exactly what date it takes place February 19th and 20th and how the aforementioned daylight savings affects various zones Added to DuBurke s images it s a creative take on a difficult to teach concept One of those books you ll add to your collection out of necessity as well as for the fun of itAges 4 9
