Tina doesn't like to be late, but she can't help it. There's just so much to do, and Tina is not good at managing her time. Her brother is always on time, so much so that her parents call him "Timely Tommy." She wonders, why can't she be more like her brother? When she's late to a friend's birthday party, Tina decides to make a change.

However, change isn't easy. Tina will have to make a whole new schedule and learn what it means to be on time--and what it costs other people when she isn't. Being late affects the lives of everyone around her and sometimes hurts feelings. Tina doesn't want to be late, and she certainly doesn't want to hurt anyone!

This book is for any young girl or boy who struggles with getting things done on time. It's important for children to learn from a young age that being timely is being responsible--and being responsible is important. Other people's lives don't stop because of our tardiness, so why not be the first one to the party instead of missing out?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is such a great children's book. This is a super cute story that I believe all children will enjoy. There are only about a couple of sentences on each page, so it is not long or difficult for children to read. They can get through it quite easily and the intricately well drawn illustrations that go with the story will definitely keep the kids intrigued to wanting to keep reading it. It also implies a really good message, teaching kids at a young age the importance of time and being on time.
