About the Author
Jason Fruchter is a contracted freelance illustrator and animator for several media companies and book publishers. He began his career as an animator and illustrator after graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1992. He creates children's book illustrations based on popular kid's TV properties and 2D animation for broadcast, games, apps, and interactive kiosks. In addition to his contracted work, Jason develops original properties for kids' media. In his downtime, he enjoys biking around Elliot Bay near his home in Seattle, WA, and drawing caricatures. He's currently working on a series of caricatures of the Presidents of the United States.
Animated PBS character Daniel Tiger helps readers tell time.Mr. Rogers-like (explicitly--the show is produced by the Fred Rogers Co.), Daniel Tiger welcomes his neighbors, inviting them to spend the day with him and learn to use a clock along the way. A large clock face with movable hands is accessible through a large, die-cut circle in the upper-right corner of each double-page spread. The hands click and clack as they're moved around the clock's face, and the sound is peculiarly satisfying. Each hand has a different noise, helping children to differentiate between the two. Daniel and his family and friends do lots of things throughout the day, including eating breakfast, going to school, running errands, eating dinner, and going to bed. The illustrations emulate the show's rounded, calmly colored style. Fans of the television show will be entranced. Daniel's constant engagement with readers will spawn busy interaction, and the fact that this book covers a whole day makes it an excellent read right before bed. A terrific resource for fans of Daniel Tiger and newcomers alike. (Board book. 2-3)--Kirkus Reviews
