The human categorization of time is difficult for small children to grasp. What is now and what is soon? What goes quickly and what lasts a long time? What are the days of the week? What all do you do in the course of a day? With the help of observable, everyday situations and funny now-and-then-flaps, temporal sequences are clarified in a playful manner, and convey the abstract concepts of time on a level even the youngest children can understand, specially for this age group that doesn’t yet know clocks.

The Author

Daniela Prusse was born in Glarus, Switzerland, in 1968. Daniela Prusse worked as an elementary school teacher for thirteen years before training in electronic publishing and becoming an editor. Writing and language have always been very important to Daniela Prusse; she easily communicates in six different languages.

The Illustrator

Susanne Szesny was born in 1965. She studied visual communication in Münster and received a diploma in design. After her studies, she worked freelance as an illustrator of games books, board books and picture books. In her opinion, a book should transport an inner value (a message, a teaching) and be a source of inspiration for children and adults equally. With her pictures she tries to build a bridge between the emotional worlds of children and adults.
