Everyone has a favorite time of day! Some like the day time, when the sun is out and there are lots of things to do and see! Others prefer the night time, when everything is peaceful and quiet. In “Beautiful Moon” by Dawn Jeffers, a little girl discovers that she can magically control what time of day it is, all the time! What will she do with these amazing powers? Find out by listening to the story in CCPL’s Tumblebooks Library (directions to find the book below), and then scroll down to find some activities you can do any time of day!
Before we had clocks and watches, people used the sun and special tools called sundials to tell time. As the sun traveled across the sky, the shadow it would create on the sundial would let people know about what time it was! With this craft from Green Kids Crafts, you can create your own sundial. Check it during the day, and talk about the things you observe!
