Marthe Jocelyn and Tom Slaughter explore opposites in this gorgeous introduction to modern art for small readers. Cut paper images introduce children to color, form, and design as they explore tall giraffes and short mice, squares and circles, light day and dark night.

An art book as well as a sound learning tool, Over Under is stunningly simple and simply stunning.

It seems like it's meant to teach some basic English words, but uses too many misleading illustrations that make them hard to learn.

Bold and colorful illustrations will certainly please many children.

Really great, clear pictures and simple to read. Showcases the concept of opposites well. Might be too young for storytime, but a good one to keep as an extra in case some younger kids are around.

A concept book that is a little too artsy and a not quite clear enough. Best for families who hang Warhol's tomato soup poster in the nursery....
