Overview

Introducing the new children's series, Off We Go!

Typical everyday and once-in-awhile outings to the grocery story, hair salon, and dentist, with their unexpected noise levels, lights, smells, and people, can be a minefield for kids with developmental disabilities.

Author Avril Webster created the Off We Go! series to help her son with an intellectual disability practice and visualize these routines to alleviate anxiety about what's going to happen during these activities. Brightly illustrated in an uncluttered cartoon style, and featuring simple text vetted by a speech language pathologist, these stories tell and show kids what to expect.

In Off We Go to the Grocery Store a child and her mother make a list of items to shop for, go to the store ("It is very bright and noisy and busy! It's okay."), fill the cart with what's on the list, wait in line ("We go to the checkout. We wait for our turn."), and cheerfully head home with their groceries.

These are great stories for parents, occupational therapists, teachers, and aides to read aloud to children with autism, Down syndrome, sensory processing difficulties, speech and languge delays, ADHD, Executive Function Disorder, and even children for whom English is a second language. They provide good opportunities to improve language development, communication skills, self-esteem, and confidence.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This and other books in the "Off We Go!" series have been written for children with special needs. According to the blurb on the back cover, these stories worked well with an autistic child providing language to self-soothe as the child embarked on overwhelming outings. The language is very simple and the illustrations, while cartoon-like, are also quite simple. In this title mother and daughter are off to the grocery store. Each step is explained from creating a shopping list to driving to the store and picking up a shopping cart. The store is bright and noisy, but the young girl focuses on helping her mother find the things that are on the list. Once the selections have been made they go to the checkout line. Our young girl helps pay for the groceries and also helps put the bags in the car. There is a note from the author explaining in more detail her experience with her son who has a moderate to severe intellectual disability. She explains how she prepares her son for upcoming events and that these books have been helpful to special needs kids as well as children for whom English is a second language. There is a list of the number of ways that the books can be used. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1— These simple stories are intended to help children with learning disorders cope with new experiences and changes in routine. They include 12 uncluttered cartoon pictures depicting smiling multiethnic characters, one or two lines of text under each illustration, and information for adults on how to use the books. Repetition of reading and exposure to common social settings will help children know what to expect when encountering these situations. The texts explain what is going to happen, such as when going to get a haircut, "I sit and wait for my turn. I look at a magazine." "The scissors don't hurt." "The clippers make a funny sound but they don't hurt either." Grocery Store explains, "We go through the big automatic doors. It is very bright and noisy and busy! It's okay." Adults looking for simple explanations to help special-needs children will find these titles useful.—Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX
