Opposites (Touch Think Learn)by Xavier Deneux
Synopses & Reviews
Introducing TouchThinkLearn books, a format unlike any other. Combining scooped-out die-cuts with raised, shaped elements, each book is designed to offer the youngest learners an irresistible opportunity to explore their universe in a hands-on, multisensory way. Seeing the image, tracing its shape, saying its name: these modes of perception combine in a dynamic way to stimulate understanding of essential concepts. Experience green both in the beauty of a raised leaf's surface as well as in the caterpillar that munches on the leaf's edge. Celebrate a moon rising into the night, while simultaneously a sun sets deep into the mirroring page. Translating abstract thought into tangible knowledge, groundbreaking TouchThinkLearn books give early learning new dimension.
"Deneaux brings a pared-down aesthetic and a subtle tactile dimension to this stylish exploration of opposites. Glued-on cardboard pieces on the left-hand pages dovetail neatly with recessed shapes on the right. 'High' is represented by a cat atop a ladder, while 'Low' uses the ladder's skinny rectangular shape to show a mole peering up from the bottom of a hole. A 'Caged' lion weeps but becomes 'Free' on the next page after the bars of his cage are lifted, while a 'Heavy' (and cute) gray elephant echoes the shape of the 'Light' cloud opposite. Fun for fingers, eyes, and minds. Available simultaneously: Colors. Ages 3 — up." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
Day meets Night and Night meets Day in this delightful picture book based on the Pixar short, Day and Night, which premiered with Toy Story 3 in 2010. Kids will delight in the way these two characters explore their differences and eventually realize how much they like and enjoy each other. A wonderful way to experience the magic of this Pixar short again and again andrejoice in the attraction of opposites!
