This book is very good for a young audience who is learning about the opposites of things. Its a very interactive book, with being able to flip the same page and open it to reveal the opposite of the item or thing. i would recommend this book for a much younger audience not an older group of kids. It could be a fun book for younger kids. ( )

Through a series of die-cut pages, the reader discovers that things are not always what they seem. ( )

Terrific concept, as I've come to expect from Seeger.  Execution is insufficient.  Some pairs are wonderful.  Those that focus on 'it's a matter of perspective/ how you look at it' are the best.  But Nothing/Something should have been edited out completely.  And (for example) Addition/ Subtraction is just lame, a cheat, because the whole equation simply changed to a brand-new one (2 2 = 4 turns into 4 - 2 = 2, with the plus sign making the cross in the 4).  And, imo, too many are like that - the few that are wonderful aren't enough to make this one of the best books in this overcrowded field (of picture-books about opposites).

An interactive flip book on different opposites! Laura Seeger uses colorful pictures and engaging pictures to explain different opposites! ( )

You can probably predict what this book is about. It is still a fun read as the drawings and flaps that hide the opposite are fun.
