Kumon My Book of Telling Time
This second book in the Telling Time sequence helps children learn how to tell time down to the minute. By using a variety of different activities to keep children engaged, My Book of Telling Time helps children learn this difficult skill without feeling frustrated or anxious.
Telling time is one of the skills that reinforce how useful it is to learn number skills. Familiarize your children with the concept of telling time by using distinctive Kumon step-by-step books. Kumon's slow, systematic approach helps children learn this difficult but vital skill with minimal distress. This is accomplished by concentrating on the hours first, then incrementally introducing them to half- and quarter-hours, finishing with 1-minute increments. If your child can count from one to sixty, he is ready to tell time, right down to the minute.
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 are looking forward to adding this to our kindergarten curriculum. It looks like a great introduction into learning time
My son doesn’t like all the repetition but I think it’s great practice to reinforce the concepts we’ve already learned in our math curriculum.
We used this as a supplement and it was really good practice.
My son doesn’t enjoy this book, but it’ll get the job done. Lots of repetition.
I'm a huge advocate for my kids learning how to tell time consistently. This is a supplement for both my 2nd and 4th grader!
