Written by Katherine Ayres and illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott, Up Down and Around is Pennsylvania's One Book, Every Young Child 2008 selection. The book is a short rhyming, read-aloud story that contains facts and true information about vegetables, bugs and gardens and lends itself to a variety of activities.

For example, after reading through the book once, an adult might assign each child the name of a vegetable in the book. When each child hears the name of his/her vegetable, he/she can jump up and twist and turn in the direction named: up, down, or around.
