Video: This Book is a Time Machine

How do you explain what the past, present and future mean? Tracey Dembo and Lucinda Gifford have created a book to do just that using the creative process of making a book. They put themselves as the narrators and, well, it's probably easier for you to read the book (and watch the video below) than for me to try and explain how they twist and travel through time.

Hello there! Guess what???You are holding a real-life time machine!
??You don’t believe me?
??I’ll show you!
??For a start, I wrote this blurb in the PAST.
??Yet, you are reading it in the PRESENT.
??And when you finish reading the blurb, it will be the FUTURE.
