Hippopposites (Board Books)

Special Order - Subject to Availability

Staff Reviews

This FABULOUS board book is one of the most fun and unique I've ever seen! Introduce kids to concepts you might expect (like small & large, or full & empty), but also to new ones that will surprise you (like opaque & transparent, or free & caged). Simple, understated, AWESOME!



Behold: an opposites book like no other. Simple pairings of words, both expected (small/large) and unexpected (clear/blurry), are humorously illustrated with a graphic and lovable red hippopotamus. Bold colors and surprising die-cuts and textures spice up this elegantly engaging board book.
