Grade 1–3—This fun tale allows students to talk about time and practice reading a schedule. As a grandmother and her two grandchildren travel to a family wedding on a train, a variety of experiences awaits them as they race around on a tight schedule. Colorful cartoon art adds a touch of humor. This easy reader lends itself to discussion of the importance of promptness, telling time, and ways of keeping track of it. While children may be able to read the story independently, the math practice might best be achieved by reading along with an adult. Additional math activities are appended. Children may even see something of themselves as the family dashes about trying to be on time.—Anne L. Tormohlen, Deerfield Elementary School, Lawrence, KS
