Learning to tell time is often a challenging concept for some young children.

The charismatic mouse bounces, springs and sleeps his way through the story accompanied with humorous sounds effects and animation. The simple and classic nursery rhyme has been extended to create appealing interactive games for each number-rhyme, providing children with both visual and audio cues to help them learn more effectively.
