Just A Minute!
A Crazy Adventure in TimeBook - 2009
In just a minute...your heart will beat 60 to 100 times, your kitchen faucet will send two to four gallons of water down the drain, a cheetah racing after its food will run the length of four to five football fields... What else can happen in just a minute? Readers will have to follow David (who is almost five million minutes old) through his zany day -- which involves escaped animals, a crashed movie set, and backyard hijinks -- to find out. As readers come along for the ride, they learn a myriad of facts -- featured as fast facts on the pages -- related to what can happen in a minute in the world all around them. A special section at the back of the book presents a brief history of time devices, from sundials to water clocks and candle clocks, all the way through to atomic clocks. Howlingly funny, surprising, and fascinating, this is a tour through time that readers won't want to miss.
