I have bought this book for our great-niece and I don't know yet whether she will like it and whether it will help her to read the time. If I get good feedback, I will let you know! It is a medium sized book in hard, cardboard pages. The story is rather short. It briefly describes the spider's day at different times of the day and the child can move the hands of the clock while reading the book. The illustrations are lovely. I think our great-niece will like it.
