Starred Review, PublishersWeekly, May 30, 2011:
"Fisher (The Fantastic 5 & 10¢ Store) gives preschoolers a leg up on need-to-know information in this energetic collection."
Review, The Wall Street Journal, July 23, 2011:
"There's a faint haziness in Ms. Fisher's photographic style that gives her tableaux a sugared quality; you feel vaguely that you ought to be able to pluck the objects off the page and eat them."

Everywhere I go teachers of little kids go ape over it, but you could give it as a present and be as popular as a popsicle.
-opposites (10 sets)
I thought it was going to have more concepts to talk about with my toddler (like examples of cause and effect, manners, skills) which could give me ideas for activities. Number, letter and colour books are easy to find; I thought this book would have a little something different to offer. It is so short, I think you'd be better off buying individual books about each of the "subjects". For example there are only a few opposites, whereas a book about opposites would cover more. The content of this book does not match its title!
