Well designed and interesting

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-11-18) Very Good Permalink

Although the text is pretty dense in portions of this book, it is well designed and interesting. There is very little in print on the topic of the history of time and I think this would be a good addition to collections in libraries that serve grades 5 and up.
