“Bold, playful design and animal appeal make this an ideal choice for teaching early learning concepts … Sixteen different critters introduce preschoolers to 16 antonyms … The images should provoke plenty of discussion beyond the text, which offers numerous vocabulary-building opportunities … Author/illustrator Farina’s high-contrast artwork is dominated by primary colors and uses a retro-fied modern graphic design aesthetic, with uncluttered compositions that are nevertheless rich in personality and detail … should captivate little ones and caregivers alike and are great candidates for solo toddler reading.” (Board book.
