Enter this beautiful garden and see what opposites you’ll find! A short caterpillar and a long garden snake, a closed bud and an open blossom. These delightful images will teach youngsters about basic opposite concepts, and about the charms and wonders of the outdoors!
This simple book has a surprise treat at the end—a gatefold displaying the whole garden, with opposites galore for little ones to search for. Plus, sturdy cardstock pages make this book perfect for reading indoors . . . or for taking to the park!
Eight sets of opposites, depicted in a garden setting, include the inside of an apple cut in half and the outside of a whole apple; a big beetle and a small ladybug; a short garden worm and a long snake; a mother bird asleep on a nest and three newly hatched babies wide awake; a closed bud and an open flower with petals, etc. The last page expands to a three-page foldout inviting children to find their own pairs of opposites. Bright, crisp childlike illustrations, with one simple object and one word per page, result in a clean, uncluttered design. An attractive concept book for the very young.-Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
