4.0 out of 5 stars Great original book that could be told a little better. 29 Oct 2013

Format:School & Library Binding|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A cat is sleeping with a little boy when a mouse is spotted eating a cookie. The cat chases the mouse. A dog chases the cat. A dogcatcher chases the dog. A robber's money falls into the dog catchers net so he chases the dogcatcher. The police chase the robber. They all run into a grocery man who spills his bananas and everyone flies in the air and lands on the ground. Everyone sorts themselves out. And then everyone is back home. It's time to wake up, but the mouse is back ready to start it all in motion again.

All of this plays out in 1 hour, with random times started at 6 a.m.

Personally I think the story is best told without mentioning the time. It doesn't flow very well when you read it that way. Still, you can omit it, or you can read it for older children that might be learning the time or how to read.

I didn't like the way the words are written around the picture. It makes it difficult to read.

I did like the illustrations, which are very unique.

My 4 1/2 year old seemed to enjoy the book, but he didn't have much to say about it afterwards :/

5.0 out of 5 stars Calling in the Expert 28 July 2013

My wife is a second grade teacher. I asked her to review this book for possible use in her classroom. Here is what she said, " All in One Hour is a cute way to show the progression of time in a sixty minute period. The illustrations are captivating and the repetitive is one children will enjoy hearing over and over. I also like that the time was displayed on an analog clock on every page. A fun book to sharpen reading skills while learning about time."

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing action story featuring 4 people and 3 animals 2 Nov 2013

A lot of running occurs in this book. Everybody is chasing either an animal or a person, but it's all in a line. The conclusion is a happy one, thankfully.

3.0 out of 5 stars Simple story, cool pictures 29 Oct 2013

All in One Hour by Susan Crummel is a simple story about a mouse that starts a chain reaction at 6 in the morning.

My five year old was enamored of the pictures, they almost look as if they were made out of paper mache, but he was less into the story.

The story itself is very simple: a little mouse startles a cat, that startles a dog that startles the dog catcher, and so on and so forth. At five, my son enjoys children's books that rhyme-Dr. Seuss is a favorite. Reading books like that help keep him engaged in the story as he loves to figure out what word will rhyme with one I have previously read to him.

This book was hit or miss in that regards. Some of the pages flowed very well, and others were stilted and sounded awkward. The concept of this book-that lots of things can happen in just 60 short minutes was not completely lost on my son, he seemed to understand it when we talked to him about the book, however he just wasn't that into the story.

In short-illustrations are cool, story not so much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a Time Teaching Book, but Still Fun to Read 29 Oct 2013
By Katherine Chan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:School & Library Binding|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
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.
