Opposites

Illustrated by Sandra Boynton

About The Book

From HIGH and LOW to FAST and SLOW, opposites are full of fun in this Sandra Boynton board book favorite.

Boynton’s delightful rhyming text and whimsical cast of animal characters, who play on a teeter totter, lift weights, talk on the phone, and hide under umbrellas, perfectly complement the concept of opposites while introducing little readers to new words and juxtaposing ideas.

Hot and cold
Young and old
Wet and dry
Hello! Goodbye.

Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, children’s author, songwriter, producer, and director. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over seventy-five children’s books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers. More than 85 million of her books have been sold, “mostly to friends and family,” she says. She has also written (with Michael Ford) and produced six albums of renegade children’s music. Three of her six albums have been certified Gold (over 500,000 copies sold) and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, has been certified Platinum (over 1 million copies sold). Boynton has also directed twelve music videos of her songs, including the award-winning “One Shoe Blues” starring B.B. King, “Alligator Stroll” starring Josh Turner, and “Tyrannosaurus Funk” (animated) sung by Samuel L. Jackson. She lives in rural New England, and her studio is in a barn with perhaps the only hippopotamus weathervane in America.
