KIRKUS REVIEW

The focus is on schedules and routines in I.Q.’s latest time-centered outing. The lovable class-pet-who-wants-to-be-a-student is this time preparing for Parents’ Night. However, the class’s schedule is so busy that he’s finding it hard to get his special project done. He helps Mrs. Furber with the science lesson and joins in as the students go through their day—math, reading time, recess, lunch, PE—each governed by the time displayed on a digital clock. Throughout, I.Q. squeezes in work on his surprise, which is a hit with the parents. While the emphasis is on the routine of the school day, there are some elements of telling time mixed in. The students learn the reason for 24-hour days, practice telling time, count by fives and fill in a clock with the correct number of minutes. Fraser also covers the numbers of minutes in an hour and seconds in a minute. Delightful illustrations and wonderfully expressive faces extend the story. A comforting look at what to expect from kindergarten by an already beloved character. (Picture book. 4-8)
