We go through Peppa’s routine with her, from 7 am when she wakes up, to 8pm when she goes to bed. Peppa takes us through her busy hours of the day, as she wakes up, goes to playgroup, family time and bed. There is also a replica clock, and each page shows us how the time appears on the clock.
Probably my favourite Peppa Pig book, as it is not just an episode of Peppa Pig. It allows young minds to grasp the connection between time and activities, but it is also a good way to reflect on the child’s day and point out anything which they did which was similar to Peppa Pig’s.
Each page has:
- Instructions on where to place the hands of the clock,
- What time it is (e.g. 8 o’clock)
- What activity is carried out (e.g. Bed time)
- A mini comment (e.g. Peppa and George are now ready for bed…)
I found that my two year old understand the purpose of a clock better, and it also helps with learning numbers as she can move the hands of the clock to the numbers (and she automatically adds the word o’clock when she’s happy with the positioning).
I’m aware many other children’s programs have their own versions of telling the time through reading, but for all the Peppa Pig fans out there, this is one to get.
