My Wake Up Book is intended to be an interactive read between a child and adult care giver – as motivation for a smooth morning routine or any time of day that works for the child. The colorful pages and rhyming words draw the child into the activities described. They show a diversity of children and families participating in fun ‘brain-body’ balance activities, based on the general OT practice of sensory integration. Early vocabulary and cognitive concepts are also built in for added developmental skills. An extra benefit is the quality time shared between the child and reader – one of the best and easiest ways to enhance a child’s growth.
