Description


Follow an energetic toddler's day with Dad that's full of opposites - up and down, make and break, yum and yuck, and more.

From his first demand to be picked up and then immediately put down, opposites pop up all day long for this energetic boy. Breakfast is no, no, no, yes! At the sandbox, it's make, make, make, break! And jumping into the pool goes from can't, can't, can't, to can!

Kimberly Gee's expressive illustrations emphasize the loving connection between a boy and his father in this clever concept book about everyday highs and lows that is sure to entertain little (and big!) members of the family.

About the Author

Kimberly lives in Claremont, California with her family and other things she loves: a garden, a tortoise, and a bunny.

Praise For…


"A toddler lives through a day full of opposing directives with their stay-at-home dad. . . The parts of this day will be familiar to parents and children alike. . . A fresh take on opposites and routines for the very young." -Kirkus Reviews

“Opposites loom large for babies, and Gee brings the concept to adorable life. Her action-packed visual vignettes refreshingly feature a brown-skinned baby and caretaker dad who dramatize the obvious (‘no’ and ‘yes’) and the more subtle (‘yay’ and ‘uh oh’). Her touch is feather-light, with many telling details to spot.”  -The New York Times

Destruction takes time. From decades to millennia, each character in Sabaa Tahir's third book has been waiting for the perfect moment to strike and the world is forever going to be changed by their revenge. Sabaa clearly planed her destruction well because I am not sure I can recover from her carefully planed betrayals, prophecies, and heart-pounding moments. This will not disappoint any long-suffering fan. - Jessica
