How long is a second? A second is a hiccup--the time it takes to kiss your mom, or jump a rope, or turn around. The newest book by acclaimed picture-book creators Hazel Hutchins and Kady McDonald Denton explains units of time in imaginative terms children can understand: A second lasts as long as a hiccup; a week is seven sleeps; and a year is the time it takes to grown into new shoes! Any parent who's been asked, How long is a minute? or any kid who's wondered, What does 'an hour' mean? will enjoy this smart, simple, and surprising book.
