Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock: It’s Time to Read by Davon Miller is the adorable story of Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock who will teach young readers the importance of reading books and going to the library. Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock and his son Ricky are on their way to the library. Ricky is playing a video game while Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock is returning a book. Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock introduces Ricky to Vasetta, the librarian. Ricky’s video game battery dies and Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock pulls out a book with lots of pictures from the shelf for Ricky to read. It is time for Storytime at the library and Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock is going to read a story called The Book-Hog. After Storytime, Ricky notices someone going around the corner with a pile of books. It happens to be Andrew, who is taking the books because he wants to read all of them. Buddy Bookworm asks him to get a library card so that he can borrow them from the library and read them all.
The author’s approach to introducing young readers to the library and everything that goes on there is novel and interesting. It is a good story for children to get introduced to the habit of going to the library, borrowing books, and reading. The illustrations are as endearing as the characters and the scenes. The images bring the scenes to life for readers and give the story a good pace and movement. Reading books is important for children to learn and grow, and there cannot be a better story than this one for them when it comes to encouraging good reading habits and visiting a library.
