It met and exceeded my expectations! The text are moderately simple examples of opposites, using dachshunds and some other animal friends. But it isn't just "Hot" - "Cold" for the majority. There is a "Hide and Go Seek Dog," for instance. The book has a good rhythm that has my son (3.5) "reading" along with me often. The words are also simple enough that I think this would make a good beginning reader book.
My favorite thing about this is the illustrations - I think good art in a kids' picture book is incredibly important since most kids are being read to rather than reading themselves. :) The illustrations are colorful and really bring out the meaning of the words, like "Cold Dog" is in the snow, wearing a hat and scarf, with a mug of hot drink in front of him.
Which brings me to something else I love: in almost every scene, there is a mug and a dog bone. Often, there is also at least one bunny, too. My son has loved finding the bone and "cup of tea" since he was about 2. I think his favorite is the page where the "tea" is knocked over and spilling.
Overall, this is a seriously cute picture book with wonderful re-readability (also important since any parent is likely to be reading the same book over... and over... and over... and over).
