Book Review: Opposites

Rating: ★★★★☆

Sandra Boynton’s lighthearted, silly rhyming books engage toddlers and older children with an innocent sense of humor that will amuse adults as well.  This book presents a number of animals illustrating the concept of opposites: an elephant and a rabbit on a see-saw show “heavy and light,” for example and a large animal with a tiny umbrella illustrates “wet” while another with a standard umbrella illustrates “dry.”  This brief book has several visual gags, and proceeds in a punchy, rhythmic rhyme that will be quickly memorized.  It’s an excellent toddler read-aloud.  Also available in Spanish.
