Opposites are everywhere in our world. Spend a day at the park and you're sure to spot busy kids and active animals acting out opposites pairs wherever you look.

There, on the slide: Sam goes up as Hiroko zips down. And there, in the tree: one squirrel climbs up and another scurries down. Not far away, Daddy is quiet but Simon is LOUD while a mother bird is silent as she feeds her chirping babies.

Jump in to Kids Do, Animals Too and check out ten pairs of opposites. Each pair features people and a different animal, including:

- fast, slow - dogs
- in, out - mice
- up, down - squirrels
- on, off - frogs
- ahead, behind - ants
- quiet, loud - birds
- under, over - spiders
- wet, dry - ducks
- toward, away - butterflies
- asleep, awake - squirrels, bats

Nora Hilb's softly colored artwork features familiar park settings and includes look-and-find details that cleverly connect each active scene. Meanwhile, Debora Pearson's aptly crafted language keeps the action moving and the learning fun. A playful way for kids to learn actions, animals, and opposites.
