Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eileen Hanning
Pamela Harris' first children's book is both engaging and endearing. Her color photographs of faces in juxtaposition depict a series of opposites. The spare rhyming text develops a lovely cadence and yet lets the pictures do most of the talking. Harris includes the usual opposites such as hot/cold, big/small, and wet/dry, as well as more thought-provoking comparisons including shy/bold, spring/fall, mom/dad, and bearded/bare. While parents and teachers will enjoy sharing this concept book with children, beginning readers will equally enjoy using the photos and rhyme scheme to help them guess at text. Harris' photos include images of children (and a few adults) of various races, ethnic backgrounds, and ages. Harris adroitly finishes her refreshing picture book with a bye-bye face-wrapping up her rhyme scheme and giving the book a sense of completion.
Kirkus Reviews
A concept book in photographs that holds nothing new for those familiar with Tana Hoban's or Margaret Miller's work. Appearing on most spreads are two full-color photographs showing opposite concepts: First, a boy with a soccer ball, his hair dampened with sweat, next to a girl wearing a snowy winter hat. Thus "a hot face a cold face a shy face a bold face" or one rhyming stanza is evoked in four photographs and two spreads. Among the other opposites covered are old and new, cross and glad, shady and sunny, and wet and dry. The pictures are clear and engaging, showing children of various races, as well as some adults. One picture that spans an entire spreadþof two girls facing each otherþis spoiled because the book's binding falls at a crucial area of the photograph; it shows that their "how-do-you-do" faces are aimed not at each other, but at the buggy occupant of a jar. (Picture book. 2-4)
