The Lost Track of Time

Last week I finished my read-aloud of the book titled The Lost Track of Time. We then started a new read-aloud of a book titled The Phantom Tollbooth. I remember my 5th grade teacher read this book to us when I was in elementary school and I really enjoyed the story of a boy named Milo, and his trip through an alternative reality that connects to education and imagination by use of creative word-play and naming. One of the characters he meets on his journey is a large dog named Tock. This dog has a large clock on each side his his body so that he is always aware of the time.

Another favorite of mine from grade school is a book titled A Wrinkle in Time. Now that I am writing this post, I remember as a kid being fascinated by the story and movie The Time Machine.

Recognize a rather predictable pattern?
