Read Sunday Night
Opposites by Sandra Boynton
I liked this book a lot. A very simple book showing opposites and the words. Hot and Cold, Wet and Dry, etc. The art style is really fun to me, and who doesn’t love reading a book full of cool animals. Giraffes, elephants, bunnies, they all make the pages of this book. There are a few funny scenes, too, like the one on the cover showing the poor bunny stuck on the seesaw. Kids just eat that stuff up.
There’s really not much to say about it, I think it does its job well. It’s not really a story, but unlike My Very First Book of Shapes, there’s enough shown through illustrations that you could definitely add your own narrative.
Stillmog is especially good at this. I have a tendency to read word for word from the page, which is usually fine, but I think sometimes his version is more interesting than mine for Water Boy. I’m better at voices and sound effects, though.
I recommend this book for toddlers and pre-readers. I think an older reader would probably find the word simplicity pretty boring.
