Another cleverly designed concept book from Laura Vaccaro Seeger explores opposites. Each page features a single concept presented as a one-word question (“narrow?” “follow?”), and an accompanying illustration that visually conveys the idea. Part of each image is viewed through a die-cut. A lift of the heavy-stock, full- page flap reveals the concept’s opposite (“wide!” “follow!”), while the portion of the original image viewed through the die-cut is now part of a new illustration that visually expresses the opposite concept. The bold, colorful, clean-lined images in this attractive, engaging volume are arranged so that the pairings on each two-page spread reference one another with one or more shared colors. (Ages 3–6)
