Sussman, Michael B., and Scott Magoon Otto Grows down New York Sterling, 2009 Print Ages 8 Otto grows down is a great and fun book for kids who complain about having younger siblings This book is great because it tells the story of Otto and how he wishes he was the only child because his younger sister, Anna is getting all of the attention This, in turn makes Otto jealous, so when he turns six, and on his birthday he wishes that his sister wasn t in the picture So, this is exactly what happens This book is a journey of how Otto goes back in time and how he is regretting making that wish This book I really enjoyed, but also made me sad at the same time, because of the fact that while wishing a sibling isn t the way to go, even though they are so frustrating at times, I wouldn t wish away any of my siblings This made me really appreciate and realize how much my family means to me. Very peculiar from an adult point of view, but totally understandable from a kid s point of view that s how I d describe the premise of this book It was strange and funny and I liked it.

This is a great book in which little Otto, on his 6th birthday, wishes his baby sister Anna disappears In wishing in her disappearance, Otto in turn grows down and starts to get younger Everything happens to Otto backwards, and every birthday Otto wishes or tries with his decreasing speech abilities to wish the reversal of his original wish This is a humorous book that gets a LOT of laughs from students, and even has a few gross out moments they love This would also be a great recommendation for a student that has a new addition to the family and is having a hard time coping Maybe at the end of the book, they will love and appreciate their sibling as much as Otto loves and appreciates Anna. Otto Grows Down is a story about a boy who feels left out, because his parents have a new baby He wanted his birthday just to be all about him and instead his little sister he thought was ruining it by crying and getting all of the attention Otto wishes that his sister was never born Otto thought that he would just wake up and his sister would no longer be around, but instead he begins to go back in ages He learns that he would rather have his baby sister around than to be without her I think you could spark a great writing activity with this book The prompt could be, Was there a time when you felt left out because of your baby brother or sister Then, after they finished writing some student could discuss about their experiences As a wrap up activity, the students could write about their favorite time with their sister or brother. This is an interesting book Otto doesn t want his baby sister, wishes her away, and starts to go backwards in time all the way back to being in a diaper It might be a tad on the long side, text wise.The climax of the book is nearly wordless, and my kids did not actually get that Otto wishes to have his sister back at first I asked them what Otto was wishing and they said, to be big I had to point out that the baby sister was in the thought bubble and ask them the question again It may be easy for some kids to miss the key turning point of the book.
