While You Are Sleeping: A Lift-The-Flap Book of Time Around the World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Durga Bernhard is the author/illustrator of several picture books, including FIDDLE IS A SONG (Chronicle), TO & FRO, FAST & SLOW (Walker & Company), and EARTH, SKY, WET, DRY (Orchard). Durga lives in Shankaden, New York.

Review:

"Well-suited to storytime, bedtime, or just about any other time, this soothing picture book leapfrogs around the globe to drive home the idea that in any given moment, kids worldwide are sleeping, working, playing, and dreaming. 'While you are reading,' Bernhard opens, 'on the other side of the world, someone is getting dressed.' Opposite an Alaskan mother and child reading together at 10 p.m., a circular flap lifts to reveal a Nigerian girl tying her head wrap at 9 a.m. From there, Bernhard jumps to Japan, Mexico, India, and elsewhere as children engage in everyday activities. A closing note touches on time zones, the prime meridian, and 12- versus 24-hour clocks. Ages 5 — 8. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

As one child goes to bed, another is waking up on the other side of the world. Readers can lift the flap to see the same moment of time in different countries: the United States, Nigeria, Japan, Mexico, India, Thailand, Haiti, England, and Brazil.
