2006 Award
Opposites
(by Robert Crowther, Candlewick $12.99 Score:) Sturdy pages with pull tabs and turning wheels that reveal clear pairs of opposites. Bold colors and illustrations showing dynamic motion add much to the meaning of pairs of opposites, such as a rollercoaster seen going up and then one going down; a glass of juice full, and then empty; a sandwich thin, and then and thick; an alligator’s mouth open and then shut. These are just a few of the delightful illustrations. 3 & up.
