A selection of opposites--beginning with happy-and-sad--is presented by a group of engaging animal characters. On board pages.
This is a great, basic introduction to the idea of opposites, replete with simple illustrations in Sandra Boynton's fun style. I especially like that it rhymes! It's a great, quick board book for us to read on the go or before bed. My three-year-old gets to point out and think about pairs of opposites, and my one-year-old can enjoy the bright colors and the rhythm and rhyme of the text.
Sandra Boynton is a beloved American cartoonist, children’s author, songwriter, and highly sporadic short film director. Boynton has written and illustrated sixty children’s books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers. More than 70 million of her books have been sold—“mostly to friends and family,” she says. Boynton has also written and produced six albums of unconventional children’s music; three of her albums have been certified Gold (over 500,000 copies sold), and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, has gone Platinum (over one million copies sold). Boynton has also written and directed eleven short musical films and two animated shorts, including “Tyrannosaurus Funk,” sung by Samuel L. Jackson, which won the 2018 Grand Prize for Best Children’s Animation Short from the Rhode Island International Film Festival. In 2008, Boynton received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Cartoonists Society. Boynton has four perfect children and an equally perfect granddaughter. Her Connecticut studio is in a converted barn that has perhaps the only hippopotamus weathervane in America.View Author
