Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
"All About Opposites" is a new series that offers very basic information, often using only the two words from the title of the book. Up and Down features a variety of kids (high quality stock photographs) either raising a foot, a hand, or jumping up. Young readers will probably be amused by the flop-eared dog shown first sitting up and then lying down next to his rubber ball as well as the two elephants, one with its trunk up and the other with its trunk down. One of the more interesting spreads shows a young toddler at the top of the slide and then arriving safely at the bottom to demonstrate the concept of up and down. There is opportunity for caregivers to discuss the pictures and in some cases to help identify the body part that may be up or down. The book closes with references that are reasonably current, links to two websites and an index. The book is identified as Guided Reading level "A" with the word count of twenty. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-K—Each book uses photographs and simple phrases to demonstrate multiple examples of opposites. In Day, a Ferris wheel is shown during the day and then lit up at night; a house is pictured in sunlight while another is depicted with windows aglow in the evening. In Tall, a giraffe appears on each page, paired with smaller animals, such as an owl, a kitten, and a rabbit, with the words "tall" and "short" accompanying the photographs. Each book comes with a note to adults claiming that it helps "pre-readers get a jumpstart on reading." While that may be true, the uninspired images and lackluster design do nothing to attract children. In Over, identical rainbow images are used repeatedly. While a giraffe is an apt example of tall, it appears on every spread. A variety of examples might add some much-needed pizzazz to this book. Although the series aims at simplicity for clear and concise educational value, there is no excuse for uninviting, lifeless design.—Diane McCabe, Loyola Village Elementary School, Los Angeles
