Welcome, Readers!

The contest Save the Picture Book has ended. Telling people about funny, informative, beautiful, or generally awesome picture books continues. I also share middle grade books, book apps, and educational apps that my kids and I like.

It's Story Time Somewhere!

Things I love about time zones:

1. Our today is somebody else's tomorrow. And I mean that literally, not in a sappy, quote.com-y way.

2. If you have a bad morning in America, but instead lived in Australia, you wouldn't even be awake yet (and yet it would already be tomorrow.)

3. Antarctica and the North Pole. Uh oh. T...he time zones are converging. What time will it be? It's mind blowing.

4. When It's Six O'Clock in San Francisco: a Trip Through Time Zones, which allows kids to see how time zones work in everyday life, is one of our classroom prizes for Save Everything! (and the Picture Book.) A big thanks to author Cynthia Jaynes Omololu for the donation!
