Like how the author goes from being something so small and looking up to being something so big and looking down. Great lesson when talking about nature and living things. Also, the illustrations make the reader or audience feel like they are under the tree and looking up or if your a cloud and looking down.

Who ever thought they could reach the end of the world! Well in this book one can find out what is at the bottom of the world, and he or she can ever figure out what is at the top of the Earth. Children will start to realize how the world is connected to all of the living things on this planet. Our World is like a cycle; everything benefits from one another. Take your child on a wild adventure and show them the many different types of habitats in the ocean and on land. Show them the various types of animals and Science that is all around us by reading to them, "What's Up, What's Down."

This interesting book gets off to an unusual start. Turn it lengthwise to begin. The directions tell children to follow the arrows as their eyes travel up and read from the bottom of the page to the top.
