Is It Any Good?

This is an anomaly in the series: Felix doesn't travel, there are no letters or other surprises, and it's printed in board-book format with a circular cutout that allows a toy clock to show through. Unfortunately, the pages do not refer to the clock, so its usefulness is limited. The book is intended to teach telling time, but its presentation is confusing and at too high a level for the age at which most kids learn to tell time. And the board-book format is likely to seem babyish to many children old enough to understand the presentation.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
