Overview

Where is "up", where is "down"? Are you "in" your house or "out"? Is your friend standing "in front" of the tree or "behind" it?

These are just a few phrases that MY UP & DOWN & ALL AROUND BOOK inspires. Playful, color photographs by Marjorie Pitzer in the style of her popular I CAN, CAN YOU? help introduce young children to many of the most frequently used prepositions--words that tell something about location or time.

Children with Down syndrome who typically experience speech and language delays can take a little longer to master the use of prepositions than their peers. Kids up to age six will love this little book, and so will their parents who know that it offers fun and practice!

Facing pages feature many opposites--Before and After; Above and Below, for example--and corresponding pictures of toddlers and preschoolers with Down syndrome illustrate the concept behind the words. At the end of the book, a section written by Libby Kumin, speech-language pathologist and author, provides parents, teachers, and therapists with tips on how to expand their child's language skills, using the words in sentences, and tailoring the book to a particular child's needs.

Take this sturdy board book to school, to the park, or in the car. Families and classmates will have hours of fun reading the book aloud and thinking up phrases that use these key words...
Did you ride your bike "before" lunch or "after"?
Is my hat "on" or "off"?
Are you sitting "next to" your buddy or "in between" two friends?

Editorial Reviews

CAPHIS Consumer Connections
The pictures of children with Down syndrome make MY UP & DOWN & ALL AROUND BOOK valuable for a broader audience. While most board books reach an age range of birth to 3, this book with pictures of children slightly older will appeal to those children with developmental delays. MY UP & DOWN & ALL AROUND BOOK would be a welcome addition to consumer medical libraries that offer books to the pediatric population.
