This eBook focuses on the “WH” question “WHERE?” and the personal pronoun “me.”

The question “Where?” is used repeatedly throughout the book to help children learn location concepts such as- “in front of”, “behind”, and “next to.” In addition, the story is structured in such a way that it can be used to help teach children to identify, label, and categorize words, by commenting on the text and pictures.

Lorrie Ann Harrington originally created this Halloween story to teach her son, who has Autism Spectrum Disorder, new vocabulary, language-based concepts, and social communication skills.

She found that incorporating his interests, including photographs of him in the stories, helps him to stay engaged and relate to the teaching topic more easily.

Special Features:

“Read it to me” by touching the sentences.

"Personalize" the “next to me” page with the camera or photo library.

I work with preschool and elementary students with Autism. I read them this story today. They loved talking about the characters and discussing their Halloween costumes. Your apps appeal to children of all different ages. I can't wait for more. Can you make some social stories? Thanks again for all your hard work put into making the apps!

Nice format!

This is a nice introduction to some of the Halloween vocabulary my students hear this time of year with the added bonus of a lesson on prepositions. The ability to personalize the story really holds their attention. Thank You!
