Description

A lyrical poem that plays out the joys of childhood in seconds, hours, weeks and years. Happy rhymes and illustrations full of colour, light and energy capture the delights of childhood and the passage of time. Every second, minute and hour is reflected in renowned illustrator Kady MacDonald Denton's artwork. The concept of time spirals out in easy verse, making this a wonderful picture book for cozy read-alouds and for sharing memories. Awards: Nominee, Norma Fleck Award for Creative Nonfiction, 2005.

About the Authors

Hazel Hutchins

Hazel Hutckins est l'auteure de plus de 30 livres pour enfants, y compris l'album illustré primé Mattland, une œuvre qui est aussi illustrée par Duan Petricic. Hazel vit à Canmore, en Alberta.

After many years of juggling writing, raising her children, and making a home with her now deceased husband, Hazel spends her days writing full time. Winner of Writer's Guild of Alberta Award for Children's Literature, she has written children's short fiction for Chirp, Chickadee, and Cricket.
When answering where the inspiration for A Second is a Hiccup came from, Hazel comments, "I decided to see if I could find other ways to describe time. When the writing began to flow in poetic form - and when I came up with the engaging title line A Second is a Hiccup - I knew I had begun a labor of love. The book went through many incarnations....in one version I actually brought in centuries and eons! Good grief! But it finally returned to exactly what it should be...immediate, simple and close-to-home. It is my sincere hope that children of all types will enjoy finding and celebrating, among the pages, the many ways they spend their time."
