Description

One of NPR's Favorite Books of the Year
A BCCB Blue Ribbon Book of the Year

"Picture-book validation for any child who has ever chafed at being told 'five more minutes' before the end of a fun activity, or groaned at prolonged unpleasantness for the same span . . . As for the book itself, well, in five minutes you can read it to 3- to 5-year olds--twice." --The Wall Street Journal

"The authors of one of my all-time favorite children's books (Bob, Not Bob) have done it again with Five Minutes . . . Olivier Tallec manages to masterfully illustrate boredom and frenzy, and the image of the little boy as he waits five minutes at the post office is snort-worthy." --NPR

"Certain to please, Five Minutes will have kids and grownups laughing on every page." --Books to Borrow, Books to Buy

"'Funny and astute, the volume represents five minutes well spent." --Publishers Weekly

"An accessible story that entices readers to slow down and enjoy a moment (maybe five?) in its company." --Kirkus Reviews

"As the title suggests, this is a very quotidian exploration of the lofty notion of the relativity of time as it plays out in a young kid's life . . . Kids will immediately relate and chime in with their own examples of fleeting and interminable intervals." --BCCB
