Does Anyone Know?

I'm curious if anyone knows at what age children can usually recognize something as being upside down, like words and pictures in a book. My almost 2 year old has consistently turned books right side up for some time now, and I was just thinking about that today, so I was curious.

  • My DD starting turing things "right side up" at 14 months or so, but I think just because she recognized the pictures and knew they didnt look right. LOL (we read a LOT LOT LOT-it is annoying, but she can "read" books to you at now 19 months because she know what every page says.)
