In one minute, you can blink your eyes twenty times, hug your dog, plant seeds, say good-bye, watch the rain, or even save a life. So much can occur in this sliver of time—one minute can feel like a singular experience. This poignant picture book is at once an introduction to time for young readers, an ode to living each moment with purpose, and a thoughtful exploration of how children experience one minute (may it seem short or long) playfully, profoundly, and with a boundless sense of possibility.

Somin Ahn is an author and illustrator based in Korea. This is her first book.

"Shows how even something we think of as precise and exact-one minute-can feel very different depending on the situation."--Geek Dad

"An ideal educational tool for both home and school."-Booklist
