Ginn Science level three students’ book Time was written for students aged seven to eight years and published in 1989. It contains 24 pages and related to the content strand ‘Earth and space’. Using full-colour illustrations, it draws attention to the importance of time in our daily lives and how animals and plants respond to the time of day. Different types of time-keepers, ancient and modern, are described; and the story of John Harrison’s development of an accurate means of telling time at sea is recounted in picture form.
