Big and small, hit and miss, up and down, hot and cold – discovering the world of opposing elements is one of the stock-in-trades for young children. This vibrant book takes a tried-and-tested topic and skillfully transforms it into a stunning work of art – all with the clever use of some see-through pages. On the opening page you have a teeny tiny silhouette of a boy, looking up at a giant blue ball to signify "Big”. Then flip the acetate page featuring the ball onto the other page where there's an image of the big hand and magically what was big (the ball) has become something "Small.” With strong graphic tones, this cool book of opposites is perfect for enjoying with your toddler, sparking interaction and conversation.
