All in One Hour looks like it's a time teaching book, but it's really a silly story about a cat who chases a mouse and all the hijinks that happens in one hour because of that. The story somewhat plays on the "Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly" song where the long list of characters seen doing something are repeated in following pages with a new character being added on as the story progresses. In this case, it's the mouse who's chased by a cat, who's chased a dog, then a dog catcher, then a robber, and so forth. The addition of "time something occurred" along with pages inbetween that stop the "Swallowed a Fly" sequencing make this book both unique, and a little jarring to read.
Nonetheless, the kids did enjoy this book. Everyone especially liked the illustrations in this book. The images in the book are all based off of papercraft, and it was really fun looking at the detailed creations made of paper. The kids really loved the shaggy dog - the texture the artist put into making the dog look scruffy is amazing. While this book didn't teach the kids about time, it was a fun book to read and a welcome addition to our bedtime story bookshelf.
