This board book features a variety of opposites on each spread. There's no story or plot, just one-word descriptions per page. It's pretty basic, but it's a good introduction to opposites pairs for the very young who are just learning these concepts. The illustrations on each page do a good job of portraying the meaning behind each opposites pairs. Some of them, however, may need a little something added from the adult reader to make them more obvious - for instance, I ad-libbed a noisy "quack quack" and a whispered "quack quack" for loud and quiet. The toddlers in my class really liked to do their own loud and whispered quacks and enjoyed this book overall, coming back to look it over and over again throughout the week we learned about opposites.

A fun concept book that features duck and goose. We have fun reading aloud and emphasizing the contrasting concepts such as loud and quiet, near and far, and happy and sad. Good for a preschooler/ early reader. ( )

The loveable friends, Duck and Goose, are back to share what they know about opposites. With each two-page spread simply devoted to a pair of contrasting words, Duck, Goose, and their friends charmingly portray opposites in their world. Your toddler will learn nine opposite sets and your preschooler will want to dictate them to you. What’s Up, Duck? sets the stage for young children to mimic the opposites they see in this board book and to explore and find other opposites around them. For introducing an old concept, make this book a new addition to your child’s library. ( )

Simple book illustrating opposites with baby ducks. Pictures and words are simple and easy to understand. One word per page encourages word recognition, especially combined with the easy to identify illustrations. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375847383, Board book)

Little siblings of Duck and Goose fans rejoice! The stars of the bestselling Duck & Goose and Duck, Duck, Goose return in this board book for preschoolers, this time, to introduce basic opposites. In this ALA-ALSC Notable Children's Book, Goose carries an oh-so-heavy log, while duck easily balances a light-as-a-feather feather. Thistle is one fast bird, but Goose is slooo-w. And when Duck is sound asleep, Goose is wide awake. With a simple text and colorful illustrations–plus the inimitable characters, of course–here’s a wonderful, and humorous, introduction to an important concept.

Duck and Goose are best friends, but they have qualities and often do things that are the opposite of each other.
