To celebrate Opposite Day, here are some of my favorite opposites books for children of all ages!
Opposites Concept Books
A great way to help your little bitty ones learn about words and concepts is with these great opposites books. For the classic Curious George fan, Curious George’s Opposites is perfect. If super heroes like the Flash are more your speed, you’ll love the heroes and villains in Super Heroes Opposites. If you know someone who is crazy for the classics, Babylit’s Sense and Sensibility Opposites Primer is perfect to introduce little ones to classic literature and the concept of opposites!
Red Cat and Blue Cat are complete opposites, and their differences often lead to bared teeth, flying claws, and hissing! But when they learn to work together and learn from each other, they find out that their differences are what make them the perfect team, as well as individually special.
Carter Goodrich is one of my favorite author/illustrators, and his character design for Disney Pixar is nothing short of awesome. I absolutely love his books about Mr. Bud and Zorro, especially this first one. When Mr. Bud is forced to welcome Zorro into his life, he hesitates to want to share and change his beloved schedule, and his space! The new little guy poses an annoyance at first, but as they get to know each other, they find that sharing isn’t the worst thing when you’re sharing with a friend.

In celebration of January 25th NOT being Opposite Day, we will NOT be reading books about opposites. Sometimes, someone who is completely different from you in every way can turn out to be your best friend! We will be reading some of the Elephant and Piggie books, Red Cat Blue Cat, Say Hello to Zorro, and Strega Nona Meets Her Match.
Stick around to color pages of opposites, and even make your own opposites flash cards!
I hope to see you there!
