Inside, Outside, Upside Down

Stan and Jan Berenstain revisit the Bear family in Inside, Outside, Upside Down. Brother Bear loves playing inside big boxes, but he gets an even bigger surprise when he ends up on his way to town inside, outside, and upside down! Using only 23 words, the Berenstains’s ingenious Inside, Outside, Upside Down teaches basic spatial concepts, such as inside and outside, on and off, and others.

Tie-in Activity: Break out the boxes! Cut off the flaps from the top and bottom of a large box, tape the edges, and encourage your child to crawl through the tunnel as you talk about where she is. If you like, your older child can also decorate the box with crayons or markers.
