Editorial Reviews

Review

This engaging, colorful board book is designed to help young children learn prepositions. It's 'illustrated' with wonderful photographs of children, many with Down syndrome. The facing pages are color coded show children engaged in various, fun 'before' and 'after' activities. For example, a child is up on the slide on the left hand page, and down on the facing page; behind a tree and then in front of a tree. The last page, written by a speech and language pathologist, has suggestions to help children combine words into phrases. In addition, the Woodbine House website has a companion page with additional ideas for teaching children to use prepositions. Regardless of how you use this delightful book, it s one you and your children will want to read over and over again. --Newsline, Summer 2008 (Federation for Children with Special Needs)

From the author of I Can, Can You?, Marjorie W. Pitzer M. Ed., an early intervention specialist who has worked with infants and toddlers with developmental delays for over twenty years, has once again created a board book that will be a welcome addition for any library collection. My Up & Down & All Around Book will teach children about prepositions with its colorful photographs, taken by Pitzer, of children playing off and on, up and down , and in and out, which will capture the interest of children from birth to 6 years.

On the last page of the book, Libby Kumin Ph.D., CCC-SLP, an internationally known expert in speech and language development in children with Down syndrome, provides instruction on how to use this book as a tool to teach prepositions. Kumin suggests a variety of every day activities to enhance what is presented in the book.

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. --CAPHIS Consumer Connections

This is a nice photo book teaching opposites though photos. As with most board books, its durable and pretty kid-proof - my toddler and 10mth old haven't made a mess of it. I bought this for my little one who also has Down Syndrome, so he could see other kids with DS. I think it would be a good gift for anyone whether they know kids with DS or not.

Format: Board book
My Up & Down & All Around Book is a simple and delightful board book for very young children that demonstrates simple English prepositional phrases with bright, cheerful photographs. For example, one page says "Behind" and shows a playful child peeking out from behind a tree, while the next page says "In front of" and shows the smiling child standing in front of the tree. The final page is for adults; Libby Kumin, Ph.D., CCC-SLP explains how parents can use the book to teach young children about prepositions. "When your child can use prepositions in speech, ask him questions, such as 'Where do you want to go?' If he answers without a preposition, repeat the question, and then rephrase his answer emphasizing the preposition by making louder and more dramatic: 'Where do you want to go? Under the table.'" A wonderful educational tool for parents, babysitters, and daycare providers.
