I've been teaching my four year old daughter opposites lately and with the help of this book, she's really getting it! My 16 month old son even enjoys listening to me read and is it quite captivated by the bold pictures. Now this book does take you above and beyond what opposites most kids may be learning. For instance there's opaque and transparent, positive and negative, visible and invisible, clear and blurry and so on. I appreciate the differences and the challenges this book brings to the table. And it's one I'll proudly display on my shelf and recommend to parents that are looking for something different and unique. A book that's simple yet challenging. It's the best of both worlds, in my opinion.
This is a great concept for early learning and the illustrations are simple and will hold the attention of any child.

Thanks to Abram's for providing a copy for review.
The hippo images are simple and charming. They offer a great variety of perspectives in front of/behind, thick/thin, dotted/striped, and so on. My son's favorite pages are the full/empty and soft/rough pages, which offer both textures and visuals.
Have a young toddler? They're sure to read this one again and again.
