How many opposites do children encounter every day? Dark and light, small and big, inside and outside are just a few. In this illustrated, conceptual board book, young readers will learn pairs of opposite words in context by following a narrative about taking a dog for a walk. The tail-waggingly friendly illustrations work with the evocative text to further encourage readers and listeners to observe both the differences and similarities present in their surroundings.
