What’s Up Duck? What’s down, Goose?

What’s Up Duck? A Book of Opposites by Tad Hills; published by Schwartz & Wade Books, an imprint of Random House Children’s Books, New York; 2008.

Hills’ watercolor images of Duck and Goose are sweet renderings of this odd couple.  When Duck is loud, we know because thick black lines are coming from his mouth.  When Goose is near, we know because he is large as is the type.  Images and simple, one word text show what the opposite words mean.

I would use this book in a display about opposites. I think it would make a sweet addition to a program about opposites geared for preschoolers through kindergarteners.
