Aussie Animal Opposites Book Review

Book Cover

See the quiet quokka rocking her baby to sleep and the noisy numbat on the drums. Watch the energetic emu winning her race and the lazy lizard lunging in the sun (with his sunscreen on, of course).

This delightful board book Aussie Animal Opposites written by Elizabeth Lee and illustrated by Liz Faul, introduces children to the concept of opposites and will help build a vocabulary in young children in a fun and educational way.

Published by the National Library of Australia, Aussie Animal Opposites features colourful illustrations perfect for young children and will have children interacting, mimicking the animals and looking for opposites in their everyday environment. 

Not just your ordinary opposites book, the end pages include information about Aussie animals using realistic images and snippets of information. This reinforces the educational component and encourages further discussion and interest. I highly recommend Aussie Animal Opposites  as a suitable book for young learners and I'm sure children will  request again and again.
