Rory is always putting things off and always running late. It's driving his family mad! What will it take to make him change his ways? Each time he is asked to do something for someone, Rory's response is "In a minute...". But what Rory doesn't realise is that he is taking far longer than a minute to get round to doing the task. When the tables are turned though, will Rory finally realise the error of his ways? This heart-warming and humorous tale will have every child pausing for thought when they distractedly respond, "In a minute, Mum..." This gentle and funny introduction to time management and learning to tell the time is perfect for reading at bedtime with a family member or sharing in the classroom. Also includes a set of supporting notes for parents and teachers with questions to encourage discussion of the themes in the book, either at home or in the classroom.
