5.0 / 7.0
The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
5.25 / 7.0

I think this is incredibly clever and love the way that it uses a hippo throughout to demonstrate a host of opposites, some of which are more familiar (i.e. in front & behind) but others which are less common (i.e. clear & blurry).
