Can you see or hear the time? Why are turtles living calendars? Is it possible to save or give away time?
Explore the concept of time by going on a scavenger hunt with this participatory non-fiction book. Easy-to-understand texts convey the complex phenomenon, and all dimensions of time are entertainingly introduced. Creative and varied join-in activities encourage children to experiment. By carrying out these activities, children themselves find answers to their questions. Working with the book changes the book – children can write, draw and paint, glue, cut out and much more in it. In the end, it becomes a testimony of time itself. As individual as the answers to the question “What is time?” are the copies of this book edited by the children.
In cooperation with the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museum Mannheim.
