Jeg kom over følgende bildebøker som jeg gjerne vil dele med dere:

Little Bird  av Germano Zullo and Albertine, published by the wonderful Enchanted Lion Books.

Jeg anbefaler ikke minst dette kunstverket av en bok, illustrert av Rilla Alexander, med tittelen  Her Idea

Og boken Hippopposites by Janik Coat

This book isn’t fun to read, and you probably won’t like it.

JUST KIDDING! Guess what? It’s Opposite Day.

Okay, momentarily snapping back to adulthood: I used to drive my parents INSANE with the declaration of Opposite Day, and I imagine my parents were not alone in their suffering. The concept of opposites is a prevalent theme in childhood, and therefore, it’s no surprise that it’s also an established theme in children’s publishing. It’s an especially important one in the realm of early childhood books, as a basic understanding of concepts such as this one is important for language development. (And the benefits of laying the foundation for Opposite Day are, of course, understood.) So, naturally we were thrilled when the opportunity arose to include an opposites book on the Abrams Appleseed list, especially because it involves a hippo in some very unexpected situations.
