A Long Way Away

Usually in Western culture we read books from right to left, or in kidspeak, front-to-back.  But have you ever heard of a book that you can read from front-to back AND back-to-front?  If you haven't heard of such a thing, now you have!  Let me introduce you to A Long Way Away: A Two-Way Story by Frank Viva.  This brilliantly mastered book takes readers from one end and a journey from outerspace down to the deep sea.  Then start from the back end of the book by taking a journey from deep in the sea all the way up to a distant planet in outer space.  This is a great book that can provide a lot of interaction between adult and child, plus develop a youngster's narrative skills by reading and telling mutliple stories from one whole picture book.  It's guaranteed to be a lot of fun!
