At the Same Moment Around the World

Summary:
Starting from the Greenwich meridian this book takes the reader east imagining what children are doing at that moment in each of the twenty-four time zones.

Rating: 4 ****

An interesting concept for a book, beginning at 6:00 a.m. in Dakar and going an hour ahead via the world time clock, yet the same moment in time, Perrin shows what is happening in various regions of the world. The illustrations are amazing, as each page covers two very different regions whether climatically or culturally, but are blended as they meet in the book’s seam. It’s a bit too adult to be a children’s book though.
