The Lovereading4Kids comment

It's party time soon but poor Wilfred can't tell the time and worries he's going to miss the party but with the help and support of his friends can he tell the time and get to the party on time? Why not join him and find out how to tell the time yourself.

This delightful picture book is part of the Storytime series which includes When I Grow Up by Gill McLean. Beautifully illustrated, this series introduces young children to the pleasures of reading and sharing stories and comes complete with discussion points for parents and teachers are also included.


Storytime: What's the Time, Wilfred Wolf? by Jessica Barrah

Wilfred Wolf can't tell the time, big hands and little hands are too confusing! Wilfred Wolf can't tell the time, he just eats and sleeps when he feels like it! When Wilfred gets invited to a party, he's faced with a problem - how will he know when it's time to go?


'An excellent strating point for teaching the foncfiton of each hand and their position fro telling o'clopck times, in a schol or home setting. The soft illustrations supoport the story whilst varying the size and position of typeface encourages children to join in, particularly with the sound effects. (...) This is a delightful book that can be read and enjoyed again and again. Carousel'
