There are wonders all around us, often waiting just outside our line of sight. Up & Down encourages young readers to look above their heads and below their feet to discover the magic of the world around them.
Each beautifully illustrated scene includes 10-20 labeled objects and characters to identify, expanding vocabulary and illuminating the world's many details. A child climbs a tree in her backyard, while woodland creatures have a whimsical feast in a burrow below. A sleepy seaside town conceals an undersea scene teeming with life, where a SCUBA diver and mermaid make magical contact.
Taking place across a wide variety of locales from the everyday to the extraordinary, each scene will prompt children to examine the relationships between different aspects of the same environment and foster curiosity about the unseen corners of the world.
