At The Same Moment Around The World

At the Same Moment Around the World Book CoverThrough unique, richly detailed pencil and digitally colorized artwork, we meet Benedict drinking her hot chocolate in Paris, Nadia watching construction of a new building in Dubai, Khanh napping in Hanoi, Sharon and Peter kissing goodbye in San Francisco, baby Diego being born in Lima, and Chloe tired from dancing all night on a cruise ship in the Atlantic Ocean. We travel eastward from the Prime Meridian through 24 time zones to see what children around the world are doing at the same time. An author’s note tells more about early timekeeping, the invention of time zones, and even GPS. A fold-out world map that marks each child’s location is also included in this tall, thin book. mjw
