Format: Board book
We've been reading this book to our twins since they were infants. Now, as 2-yr.-olds, they are able to go though page by page and tell us all about what they see. I think it has really helped them get a good start figuring out abstract concepts.
Next to "Goodnight Moon" and "Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?", this one is consistently picked out for evening reading time.

I find myself changing up my voice (high and low) as I read to my son so he can get the idea of opposites. The pictures are cute, bright and to the point. I didn't give it 5 stars, because there's not a story line. From one page to the next is another set of opposites. If that's what you want, then this book is for you. If you want more of a story to connect from page to page, then you might not like it as much.

My 15-month old insists that we read this book to him at least five or six times a day. It was the first book he picked out to be read to him and he always searches for it on the bookshelf. It's colorful and fun and I hope your child will love it as much as ours does!

These Boynton board books cannot go wrong with the young-uns. My nephews and nieces ask me to read them over and over again.

My toddler loves this book and asks for it by name. It has fun colorful pictures that toddlers enjoy. It only has a few words on each page so it's great for a toddlers short attention span. I'm assuming my toddler has this book memorized because he knows when to turn the page.

Nice small baby gift. as a reading teacher, I find books of opposites help develop babies' language. The best one (Had for my kids - can no longer find it): Peter Spier's book on opposites (Can't remember exact title - 30 years ago : ).

My son loves the Boynton books. The art is always great, the pacing is nice (not too long, not too short), and he is beginning to pick up concepts like fast/slow, short/tall, etc. He also loves seeing the same animals in each book, it's nice to see that they keep he art consistent from book to book. I highly recommend all of her books.

I saw this book was recommended for toddlers who are about 18months old. I ordered it and I was not very impressed with the pictures but I read it to my son. Oh my! He loves this book! He started using the words in a short time. He'd say, "Fast!" and then run a few steps. He also said, "Heavy" the one day when he tried to lift a park bench. I'm so glad I bought this. It's one of his favorites.
