When it's Six O'clock in San Francisco
A Trip Through Time Zones
Written by Cynthia Jaynes Omololu
Illustrated by Randy DuBurke
When it's six o'clock in San Francisco, what time is it where you live?
When it's six o'clock in San Francisco and Jared is just starting his day, it's eleven o'clock in Santiago, where Elena is hard at work on a math problem at school. When it's six o'clock in San Francisco and eleven o'clock in Santiago, it's four o'clock in Cape Town and Nkosi stops to look at used CDs in the market.
When it's six o'clock in San Francisco, children all over the world are busy going to school, playing with their friends, and spending time with their families. This lyrical picture book, illustrated in comic-book style by award-winning illustrator Randy DuBurke, celebrates the uniqueness of our world's many cultures, while emphasizing the similarities in all children's lives.
