One Minute - Somin Ahn
What makes time seem to fly by in some instances, but crawl in others? Somin Ahn translates a seemingly complex concept into a relatable and fascinating subject for tiny tots just beginning their journeys through the weeks, months, and years of their lives. Set in the picturesque English seaside town of Brighton, this charmingly illustrated picture book describes the myriad things that can happen in just One Minute (Chronicle, $15.99) through the eyes of a little girl. Sixty seconds spent with best friends, for example, seem like no time at all; in the dentist’s chair, on the other hand, they can stretch on forever. This ingeniously conceived book is a perfect way to start a conversation with children about what makes a minute seem long or short to them. Ages 4-6.
