The Clock That Didn’t Tock

By: Karen Wu

About the Book

Grandpa has a special clock,

That only ticks and doesn’t tock.

…but that’s okay! Sometimes the things that make us different are the things that make us special.

                The Clock That Didn’t Tock is a story for children of all ages. Originally a story Karen Wu told her own children, a valuable lesson lies within: it is what’s inside that counts, not our outward appearances.
