Good book. Simple and easy for my 3yr old to understand.

Tells opposites. Good for young kids trying to learn words, meanings, opposites. Also has pictures to illustrate/demonstrate what happens.
Curious George's Opposites (Curious George Board Books) by H.A. Rey features sentences and illustrations to show pairs of opposites. Bright, colorful illustrations of six sets of opposite words utilize pictures from other Curious George books. Single and double page spreads are used. My favorite images are backward, dripping wet, out!, and awake.

Opposite pairs shown include up and down, forward and backward, dry and wet, in and out, closed and open, and awake and asleep. The opposite words are c

Everyone loves Curious George! This book of the extensive series is perfect for the youngest audience. The simplicity of opposites, the thick, easy-to-handle pages and the basic types of experiences are especially conducive to very young children. Sentence structure is basic, but at times offers inverted order of subjects and predicates which might serve to expand the child's understanding of our language. The variation of separate pictures on opposite pages interspersed with double-page illustr ...more

We love Curious George! He's always getting in to, and out of, something. He's never afraid to make a mess and learn something new - both traits we want to foster in Ezra (lord help us!). Ezra enjoyed seeing George dry, and then very wet. She enjoyed seeing him in the pig pen, and then seeing all the pigs out of the pen - what a lot of pigs! This book will be a wonderful teaching tool as she grows to understand the concept of opposite.

If your little one is a massive fan of Curious George this book is probably perfect to add to your collection of books. Plus if your at the stages of wanting to start dipping your toe into opposites this will be a great starting point for you. Your little one will love the illustrations of their favorite monkey bouncing around this book. The hard cover it's made with will keep the pages lasting a long time. :)

This is a really nice board book. Using everyone's favorite monkey Curious George and the colorful illustrations this book is full of opposites (in, out, closed, open) but also you can use it to help count. Count the pigs in the pen, the pigs out of the pen. And where the various animals live, fish in water pigs in pens. etc. My granddaughter carried this around and 'read' it on her own many times in addition to us reading it together .

This book I like because it teaches the basic concepts of opposites, that George experiences and identifies.

A learning experience I would do with children would have them break into small groups and pick 5 items from the classroom and think of an opposite to the items for later discussion on why it would be opposite.
Nice book of antonyms for toddlers.
I saved this book from the mass-giveaway for I thought it would be helpful to introduce antonyms to my students. I used it today to do so.

Despite it being a low-level book for them, it worked well as an introduction/review of a skill students have had previously.

This is one of my daughter's favorite books. She loves to point at the pictures and tell me what is going on. I think some of the wording could have been better to make it more educational and clear, but my daughter seems to understand it anyway.
Erin Saflarski
This adorable little children's picture book is just as educational as it is fun. As Curious George is riding around on his bicycle he teaches readers about opposites such as in, out, up, down, etc. in a fun way. This book is appropriate for ages 3-4.

A CHristmas present from Grandma. Tommy knows most of his opposites, except for a bit of confusion on over/under.
cute book . . . for the toddler crowd. Mom and I were bored at church and it was in the room, so we read it. :)
A great beginner book that helps teach children their opposites. Up and Down. In and Out. It has all the basics, and adding Curious George to it isn't a bad idea either!
A little light on plot, but Rye enjoys it anyway.

Good for teaching basic prepositions. Makes the concept of opposites very easy to grasp too.
This book has fun illustrations and has some pairs of opposites, but I wish it were longer.
This is a good opposites book for kids because the words are used in context.

This was a present for Tommy, but Danny likes pointing out the pictures we've seen in other Curious George books.

Margarete Elisabeth Waldstein (who would be known to most of the world as Margret Rey) was also born in Hamburg on May 16, 1906. The two met briefly when Margret was a young girl, before she left Hamburg to study art. The ...more
