ADAM AND HIS TUBA Written by Ziga X Gombac Illustrated by Maja Kastelic Translated by…
Today I’m looking at You and Me: We’re Opposites by Harriet Ziefert and illustrated by Ethan Long (Chronicle Books/Blue Apple Books, $12.99; ages 4-8). I love going to the zoo and so will your kids. Opposites have never been more agreeable!
Hey kids, join the busy zookeeper doing his daily rounds,
And learn what opposites all the animals are talking about.
The flamingo says she’s nice, but thinks the gorilla is grouchy.
One wet seal is in the water, one dry seal is out.
An alligator is on a log and
A buzzing bee is off.
The giraffe tells the penguins
He’s tall while they’re short.
The crisp, colorful illustrations add a comical touch to this amusing introduction to opposites kids will enjoy again and again.
