In this simple picture book, Hedgehog, Duck, Elephant and Pig spend an action-filled day--and, even more so, evening--with their friend Will. In the process, they learn to tell time. By linking time to every day activities, from afternoon snacks to before-bedtime tooth brushing, Lena Anderson has made this difficult concept graspable for the youngest children.
