REVIEW: Timothy Mean & the Time Machine

Timothy Mean & the Time Machine
Author: William A. E. Ford
Illustrations: Marcelo Simonetti

Timothy Mean is bored. He's imaginative and wants to find something to do. So, he finds a cardboard box, some glue and crafting supplies and builds a time machine. Every day of the week he uses his time machine to zoom off to a fun place in history. From pulling dinosaur tails to playing pranks on astronauts, there is nothing Timothy Mean can't do with a vivid imagination!

This is such a cute book for young kids! The rhyming story of Timothy Mean and the colorful, fun illustrations would make this a perfect book for beginning readers to read themselves or have read to them. Timothy has some pretty awesome adventures using his time machine. I can see this story being used in an elementary or home school classroom setting for group or supplemental reading, with related art and writing projects. If you could build a time machine and pop back to have some fun, where would you go? What would you do? I imagine a group of kindergartners or first graders could make some pretty awesome time machines, too!

Cute story! Engaging, colorful illustrations! And an adventure for each day of the week! Great book! Full stars from this former home school teacher, Mom and Oma! Fun read!
