This small square board book belongs to a series which helps very young children to understand key concepts. Much thought has gone into deciding how to present the contrasts in Animal Opposites. A little green tortoise plods along with a leaf in its mouth to suggest ‘slow’. Open the flap and you find the image of a cheetah in full flight to show ‘fast’. The ‘empty/full’ spread shows an almost blank page (apart from the head of a tiny penguin right at the bottom ), then you open the flap to reveal a delightfully busy page with lots of little penguins in different stances and attitudes to indicate ‘full’. The colours in the pictures are carefully chosen too: we have some intense primary hues like red and yellow, and sometimes pastel blues and light browns. The robust pages and flaps will stand up well to young hands. Each carefully designed double spread invites lots of talk, questions and laughter.
