Double Take!

A New Look at Opposites

Written by Susan Hood, Illustrated by Jay Fleck


This is a fun book to use as a read aloud. Students will enjoy identifying the opposites, and looking at things from a different perspective. This story can lead to some fun discussions as well. I think the book works well for all ages when used with discussion.

Review by Vanessa Eyre, Robert Frost Elementary Media Center
Rating: ★★★★✩ (4 stars)
Interest Level: Grades K-6

“Do you know opposites, yes or no? On. Off. Asleep. Awake. Opposites are a piece of cake . . . right? Not so fast! Time for a quick double take. Who knows what’s BIG unless there is SMALL? Does SHORT mean a thing except next to TALL? What is ABOVE and what is BELOW? The answer depends on who wants to know! Writer Susan Hood and illustrator Jay Fleck lead us on a topsy-turvy fun-house journey into the concept of opposites and takes it to the next level — with detours into relative terms and points of view (and a dollop of yin and yang for good measure).”
