  • Description

    What can happen in just a second,
    a minute, or an hour?
    How can we measure time?
    The flap of a vulture’s wing.
    A crocodile’s heartbeat.
    The weight of a baby blue whale.
    The life of a mayfly.
    These increments of time may sound a bit strange, but they are all fascinating ways in which we can think about time.
    But what exactly is time?
       In Just a Second, the award-winning author-illustrator Steve Jenkins brings forth unique ways to think about time beyond the hands we see every day on a ticking clock. This non-fiction picture book explores time and how we think about it in a different way—as a series of events in the natural world (some of them directly observable, others not) that take place in a given unit of time. Steve Jenkins's extraordinary illustrations will accompany this engaging look at time.
