Earth, Sky, Wet, Dry: A Book of Opposites

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Some of Bernhard's examples are basic such as "light/dark" and "big/small." Others are more advanced, e.g., "hunter/prey" and "growing/dormant." All of the word pairs serve as catalysts for further discussion. The pairs of antonyms are presented singularly on opposing pages of each spread. The text has a pleasing cadence: "winter/summer/earth/sky/growing/ dormant/wet/dry." Older children will enjoy flipping back and forth to read the descriptions of particular animals or plants that are depicted in the pictures in the illustrated glossary. While the text is simple, the art is complex. The vibrant paintings pay close attention to detail. Best suited for independent reading, this title is a welcome addition to nature-study collections.-Jill O'Farrell, Tatum Primary School, TX Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
