Description - My Up and Down and All Around Book by Marjorie W. Pitzer
Ages birth to 6 years. 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 this book inspires. Playful, colour photographs by Marjorie Pitzer help to introduce young children to many of the most frequently used prepositions -- words that tell something about location or time. Facing pages feature many opposites -- Before and After; Over and Under, 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 friend or in between two friends?
Let's walk over the bridge and watch the cars go under it!
