Animal Friends: Things That Go Fast & Slow

Illustrated by Liza Lewis

Kids will go wild for these stylish board books with tabs that introduce simple opposites. 

Children will learn the concept of opposites with these adorable animal friends! Join the colorful and silly animals driving cars fast while other ride their bicycles slow or flying their airplanes fast and riding in their slow hot-air balloons. Animal Friends: Things That Go Fast & Slow teaches children the difference between the two words in a world where wild animals ride in dump trucks and use wheelbarrows, speed through the water in boats and paddle their kayaks, and more. Children will love finding their favorite critters, while also locating the items on perfectly sized tabs for little fingers. A wonderful introduction to basic concepts.
