Brilliant hues, simple shapes, and a splashy pop-out surprise draw the youngest of readers to this clever concept book about actions and their opposites.

Age Group 12 months

What’s Happening at this Age

  • Looking at pictures and begin to name familiar items like dog, cup, and baby
  • Answering questions about what they see in books
  • Recognizing the covers of favorite books
  • Beginning to recognize when a book is upside down

All of a sudden, your baby doesn’t seem like a baby anymore! This is an amazing time for your little one as they’re very aware of the world around them. Even though they’re not saying them yet, your baby is already learning words. A wonderful way to learn new words is by pointing out pictures in favorite books and talking about each thing on the page. They’re also learning about how books work so having them hand you a book can give you a chance to talk about how you hold it. Letting your baby turn the pages gives you an opportunity to praise their own efforts at handling a book.

Why did we select this book?

We chose this book because Duckie's pairing with other animals allows readers to explore opposites. The bright, bold images make the action easy to follow, and the surprise at the end will make children ask that the book be read to them again and again.
