Crazy Town Upside Down - Book Review


I loved this book the moment I picked it up. Although not a hardcover the cover feels sturdy and slick. I liked the feel of the book and the pages. Each page is a different color and there is so much happening on every page. The book is bright and vibrant; it made me want to read it so someone. My grand-kids weren’t here so I borrowed the neighbor kids to read to. They loved it!

Crazy Town Upside Down is by Vanessa Rouse Ph.D. She also authored Crazy Town Upside Down : An Alphabet Workbook.

Directions at the front of the book explain the process of starting at the green dot and following to complete the letter. There is a page devoted to each letter in the alphabet and as the words are read the child can trace the letter.

I loved the use of alliterations and clever rhymes for each page. Example: Popsicle penguin parachutes down from a peppermint town! Pig’s popcorn flies up and around and gives poor piggy a buttery shower. The words tell us what is happening on the page and the arrows on the letter help the child know where to start and how to make the letter “p”. The font used throughout the book is one that shows the letter “a” the way it is taught in schools.

This is a book I would purchase several copies of for several of my grand-kids as I think they will enjoy it and benefit from the techniques of learning.

I recommend it for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and homeschooling parents.

Special Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
