It is thought-provoking enough for middle graders, but the format seems to aim it at the very young. For very bright and thoughtful preschoolers with patient adult readers.

Synopsis

In one minute, you can blink your eyes twenty times, hug your dog, plant seeds, say good-bye, watch the rain, or even save a life. So much can occur in this sliver of time—one minute can feel like a singular experience. This poignant picture book is at once an introduction to time for young readers, an ode to living each moment with purpose, and a thoughtful exploration of how children experience one minute (may it seem short or long) playfully, profoundly, and with a boundless sense of possibility. Plus, this is the fixed format version, which looks almost identical to the print edition.
