About The Book

Learn how to tell the time with Marty McFly and Doc Brown in this interactive board book with fun surprises on every page.

Great Scott! Marty McFly is always late. It’s almost like he doesn’t know how to tell time. Sometimes he’s in bed when he should be at school. Other times he’s back at school when he should be at band practice.

Help Marty get through the day by turning the die-cut wheel in the cover and lifting the flaps throughout the book to find out where Marty should be at the proper time. With both analog and digital clocks, young learners will get to see time in different ways.

Back to the Future: Telling Time with Marty McFly is an entertaining, nostalgic title in the PlayPop line of developmental board books.
