Karen Emigh's son Brett - the star of all three of her books - was diagnosed with autism when he was six. Each book teaches a part of language that children on the autism spectrum often struggle with. In "Herman's Hiding Places," she teaches the concepts behind prepositions. Brett and his dog Herman play hide-and-seek, and Herman is "it." Young readers will learn the meaning and uses of the prepositions up, in, under, and behind as they follow Brett on his search for Herman. This book will teach, delight, and entertain all young children.

Just like the other Herman book "who took my shoe", this book easily explains concepts - in this case it is in, out, over, under, etc. It is so cute and funny. The expressions on the character's face are so real. It's great for young kids or children of all ages who have trouble understanding directionality concepts. It's great for those on the Autism spectrum, for those who have information processing issues or for anyone.
This series of books is for children with autism but it works extremely well for elementary English Language Learners. My wife uses it in her classroom with great results! The illustrations are engaging and she said she seldom has students be so attentive with a new book. They want to read about Herman over and over again.
I use this book often with my students to discuss positional concepts and "wh" questions.
