As a worker journeys around the zoo taking care of the animals, he sees opposites all around him. From a nice flamingo to a grumpy gorilla, a big elephant to a little lizard, a tall giraffe to small penguins, a dirty hippo to a clean parrot, opposites are in abundance! But for our friend the zoo worker, the most important opposite is when he is awake–and the animals are all asleep!

Told with the simplest of dialogue between animals, this is an excellent tale of concepts to share with your child. Harriet Ziefert’s story is witty and brief, and Ethan Long’s illustrations are engaging and colorful. Don’t miss out on this fantastic book to read with your little one!
