Synopsis

Synopsis

An opposites book like no other — from the inimitable Arlene Alda!

Author / photographer Arlene Alda is back with another delightful photo essay. This time she tackles the concept of opposites with her keen sense of humor and sharp eye. This slightly off-beat collection of images is fodder for the imagination — an opposites book like no other. For children from five to eight, and those who still remember the magic of first discoveries, Arlene’s through-the-lens perceptions offer new ways to see and think about those remarkable “everyday” things around us.

This is the fourth book in a series that not only instructs but also raises visual awareness and fine-tunes observational skills. Look for The Book of ZZZs, Did You Say Pears?, and Here a Face, There a Face.
