This lyrical poem that plays out the joys of childhood in seconds, hours, weeks and years is a wonderful choice for bedtime, playtime or anytime! Happy thoughts on ever-longer periods of time spiral out in easy rhymes, as illustrations full of colour, light and energy reflect the perfection of childhood days. A charming picture book that introduces children to the concept of time and encourages them to look at their world differently.
