Kumon My Book of Easy Telling Time
Over 20 years ago, when our family began this delightful home school adventure, workbooks for toddlers and preschoolers were hard to find. But that was just as well because the ones that were available were inane, insipid or intolerable. (Why would we choose to prohibit watching corrupting television, then turn around and use workbooks with those same characters depicted in them?)
Workbooks are not appropriate for all young children; many are simply not ready for the fine motor skills that are necessary. Let those children continue to learn at their God-ordained pace and in a way that encourages a love of learning. But when your children are ready to move to focused learning, reach for Kumon Workbooks. The captivating illustrations are child-friendly and the scope and sequence are just what educating parents have been looking for.
Kumon centers have been helping children master fundamental skills for over 50 years. Originating in Japan, they have excelled in their primary emphasis of math and reading instruction. With the exception of a page or two of nonsense, these are outstanding books, worthy of any child's time and effort. The skills taught are essential and appropriate, and their presentation can entice even the most hesitant learner. The assignments are short; each is slightly more challenging than the last so that your child progresses at a gradual, comfortable pace.

We love Kumon workbooks!
Easy, and fun. My kids have enjoyed learning how to tell time with these workbooks! A great book to begin with!
My son age 3-4 wanted to learn how to read a clock and he didn't want wait until he was older to learn. So thank you for providing a book that engages him in this topic at an appropriate age level. There is a lot of writing numbers which he is not quite ready for, but its an appropriate challenge for him.
I like Kumon's style; this book didn't disappoint. My son is 4 and I'm working through the logic and some other math books before tackling this one, but I know he could handle it now if I pushed, but I'd rather not. I thumbed through the book and it's typical Kumon: colorful pages, bright pictures, varied activities. Looking forward to doing this in the near future.
This book is only easy because of how much review is done to remind the student of the same concepts over and over. How does my son tell time now? Because of this fantastic book. Kumon books are genius because they do what has to be done for kids to learn...repetition.
