Full of colorful pieces to pop out and move around, this striking, hands-on book of opposites is one that toddlers will love exploring over and over.

To play this game of opposites, press out a shape on each spread and turn the page to complete a new picture. Once readers reach the end, they will be eager to play their way back to the beginning! Not your ordinary board book, Lucie Félix’s highly original novelty title will help very young children practice early motor skills, shape recognition, sorting, and the vocabulary of opposites.
