Title: OppositesAuthor/Illustrator: Robert Crowther Genre: ConceptsThemes: Picture Book, Hands onPlot Summery: Opposites is a hands on activity that allows students to learn what opposites mean. Each page engages the student in learning. For example, on a dark page there is a flashlight where a student can pull the tab and lifts a yellow background to show the opposite of dark is light. This book contains 15 opposite pairs. Literary Merit: Style. The Opposites book the style of writing is appropriate to the subject since it does teach the student a concept. The book is straightforward since each page has its own opposite and the student just pulls the tab to find out the opposite. There was not much of a mood to the story. It was either happy or gloomy. Another positive to the book is there were no derogatory pages in the book.Response / Classroom Connections: After reading this book in the classroom I would ask students to come up with there own opposites and draw a picture showing each opposite.
Another new book from my Dad. When Moira noticed this one and we read it for the first time she thought it was the best thing in the world. In fact, I had to hide it on the counter eventually because she threw a temper tantrum every time I finished the book and closed it. We read it 5 times in a row before I decided it was time to calm down. It's a pop up style book which is exciting and opposites is her favorite thing to read about, so I guess it was destined to be a favorite.We've now stopped reading this one. I know I hid it for awhile, but I'm not sure where it is right now, so maybe it's lost. It was a little fragile for someone her age.
I think that this was the big hit of the day with the children for opposites storytime! They really liked looking at the pages change when the tabs were pulled! My daughter kept playing with it at home as she was playing storytime.
