The books from author Isabel Minhos Martins published by the Tate over the last several years have all been favorably reviewed. The people buying Isabel Minhos Martins books online seem to be buying other beautifully illustrated and well-designed books as well. This book is larger and even more eye-catching than the books from Martins that have been published by the Tate thus far. The illustrations and design of the book are particularly compelling in the large format this edition offers. Another compelling element is the map of the globe on the last page of the book that shows where in the world each illustrated event happens and at what time. While being a gorgeous work of lyricism and visual beauty, this book also has a lulling, repetitive quality that gives it appeal as a bedtime book as well. So, it introduces children to the idea of time and a global moment of time in a fascinating way, but also provides the kind of repetition that is calming. While reading about time, then, it is as if time stops, and this is a wonderful concept to explore as well. Ideal for museum stores and the gift market because of its high production values.
