What's Up, Duck?: A Book of Opposites by Tad Hills is a book that teachers and parents of infants and toddlers may wish to consider purchasing for their student's/child's school/home library. The two characters, Duck and Goose, are in a word, adorable! Duck and Goose help teach children nine pairs of opposite words like: near/far; heavy/light; dirty/clean and so on. The concept of opposites books is not new but the illustrations are what make this book stand apart from its companions on the library shelf.
Teachers who work with very young children may find that this book easily lends itself to be the book for a storytime session that supports an opposites theme that may be coming up in the classroom or currently in progress.
And the title? That alone may engage student interest right away....waallaahu a'lam.
What's Up, Duck?: A Book of Opposites (Duck & Goose): A book teachers may definitely wish to add to the classroom library (perhaps more than one copy would be a good idea if your class is large).
During your next trip to the library, check the shelf for 'What's Up Duck?' and if you find it....Check it out insha'Allaah!
