You and Me: We're Opposites

by Harriet Ziefert , illustrated by Ethan Long

We're Opposites



In this lighthearted opposites book, the toucan wants to let the anteater know which one of them is up and which is down. The flamingo thinks that she's nice . . . and that the gorilla is grouchy. And the giraffe is peering over the fence to let the penguins know he's tall and they're short.

Parent's Choice says of the app:

"CJ Education's adaptation of Harriet Ziefert's text and Ethan Long's illustration is a cheerful playful lesson about opposites. Colorful zoo animals display fourteen pairs of opposites (clean/dirty, big small, fast/slow) as preschoolers swipe and tap their way from screen to screen. Opposite pairings are fun, and have personality traits that word lovers of all ages will appreciate.

Options offered are auto play and read to me. Bonuses include a song and a game that tasks children to match the opposite pairs."
