My twenty-month-old granddaughter made this a favorite book after the initial reading. The first day we read it four times. The second day we read it three. By then she was beginning to “read” the words herself.
The ducks are adorable. The pictures are simple and clearly show the concepts. Hills illustrates the ducks’ emotions with charm and humor.
Each double spread shows a pair of opposites. They are front and back, loud and quiet, happy and sad, near and far, slow and fast, clean and dirty, heavy and light, up and down, and awake and asleep.
I will be looking for more books by this author.
