For those readers who don’t want to just tell time but also figure out how it works, there are dozens of books out there on clocks and the art of telling time. Some are meant to help teach how to read an analog clock and others focus on repairing an old grandfather clock.
Most clock books can be found at a local bookstore, and are often quite cheap. However, we all know that finding clock books for sale is always better.
Types of clock books
· Books for kids: These clock books are mostly picture books that explain the passage of time in a simple way. They focus on the hours and minutes, as well as the hands of the clock. At least one clock in the book will have movable hands so the kids can manipulate them and tell the time themselves.
· Books on repair: These books force the reader to open their clocks, whether they are cuckoo clocks or ancient grandfather clocks, and get inside the gears to fix common problems. From syncing up the chimes to ensure they ring every hour to ensuring that the gears stay lubricated and don’t jam up… these repair books can fix everything.
Where to find them
Clock books can be found online, in bookstores, and even checked out from the local library. Anywhere a traditional book is found, there will be at least a few selections on clocks. Other information can be found on websites dedicated to clocks.
If a clock book is needed for either teaching a child or repair of a clock or watch, looking in traditional places to find the clock books will help in getting a massive wealth of information and some might even be cheap to acquire and use to repair and maintain the clocks.
