Each scene shows the birds outside in the grass, doing opposite actions:
* First they stand forward, then backward.
* The gray duck screams while the blue bird whispers.
* The gray duck leaps for joy while the goose sheds a tear.
* The goose is close, the yellow duck stands far away.
* The yellow duck walks slowly while the gray runs quickly.
* The goose is clean, the yellow duck is muddy.
* The yellow duck barely lifts the heavy goose while the gray duck balances a light feather.
* The yellow duck has a butterfly on its head while the goose looks at one down on the ground.
* Finally, the goose is awake while the other three birds sleep.
At only twenty-two sturdy board pages, this is a perfect first reader, but it's also a great book to read with your toddler.
Along with the typical opposites of up, down and slow, fast, there are also my favorites -- clean, dirty and heavy, light.
The illustrations are what make this book a winner, and the absolute perfection of Duck and Goose are not to be missed.

My daughter, who is still too young to comprehend opposites, loves to look at the pictures and point at Duck, and the sturdy board book can withstand her strong and awkward grip as she flips the pages.
This book is an entertaining way to introduce new vocabulary and the concept of opposites to preschoolers who will definitely get a laugh at the funny scenarios and facial expressions on the characters.
