In this, his first pop-up picture book, internationally known author-artist Mitsumasa Anno treats his readers to a three-dimensional view of time. In a text that is as entertaining as a game, and pictures that unfold or stand up as the pages are opened, Mr. Anno makes the complex relationship between the motions of the Sun and Earth graphically clear and understandable.

Here is a perfect introduction to the study of time and its measurement, a book that offers delightful evidence of Mitsumasa Anno's belief that science and mathematics can open up avenues of insight for young people into the beauty and order of our universe. Good +. Item #8285
