Love Sandra Boynton! ( )

This book is silly, yet teaches the meaning of opposites. Not one of my favorites, but I do like the illustrations and I do think it serves the purpose of getting across to very young children as to what opposites are. ( )

This is an easy-reader concept book for 0-preschool ages centered around opposites.
  adriennelaine | Mar 12, 2015 |
"Opposites" provides several humorous examples of opposite words. The text teaches position words, adjectives, size, and various other words using opposites. The illustrations go right with the words and a young reader can follow along. As they begin sounding out words this book would be great to teach sight words or practice sounding out specific words. It is also a book that works well to read it to the children a few times and then have them read it back to you. ( )

This is a great book for little ones and bigger children, too. The illustrations are wonderfully funny and illustrate (duh!) the opposites very nicely. An instant hit with the children. ( )
