double take! a new look at opposites

"HIGH might look hazy

until we see LOW.

A racer's called FAST

when rivals are SLOW.

Now just when you think you've mastered that notion,

Watch relative words set matters in motion."

Looking and thinking about opposites from a new perspective—from multiple perspectives—is the clever and thought-provoking premise behind Double Take! A New Look at Opposites.  Jay Fleck's illustrations are a delight and Susan Hood's ideas give us much to ponder and show us that how we see things is so dependent upon our point of view.  A smart and refreshing look at opposites.

Double Take! A New Look at Opposites was written by Susan Hood and illustrated illustrated by Jay Fleck. Out from Candlewick Studio on June 13.
