What's Up, What's Down?

What's Up, What's Down? - Lola M. Schaefer, Barbara Bash Oh, What's Up, What's Down is not a bad little book, I suppose. It's short, and it's different in its layout, which makes for a little bit of a different reading experience. The problem, I thought, was that there wasn't much meat to this story, so it really requires the readers to give the story some substance. I chose to do this with my niece and nephew by having them guess what the next page would show. That sparked their interest, and made their little wheels turn, but the book was done so quickly, that I don't know that they even had time to really appreciate the grace of it. Still, the book can lend itself to interactivity, so it certainly can be as fun/interesting/educational as the reader chooses to make it.
