    One thought on “What’s the Opposite?”

    1. This new Hueys concept book features - as you've probably guessed - opposites. This fourth Hueys book released as a full hardcover picture book and board book simultaneously. The text and illustrations remain the same in both bindings, so choosing which version to purchase is truly a matter of binding preference. A great continuation to this fun series.

    2. Cute and funny book! I chose this book because it is not your typical opposite book. It is humorous. A parent would definitely get a kick out of reading this book to their kiddo. Great illustrations that capture the audience. I absolutely love the Hueys books.

    3. The Hueys are back and this time they're learning about opposites. Use this engaging book to teach little ones the meaning of the word opposite. Jeffers even throws in a glass half-empty and half-full to entertain the adult reader!

    4. Age: 3-6. Silly concept book about opposites. Would be fun for a family or Alphabet Soup (2-5) storytime!

    5. The Hueys start of by discussing what the opposite of the beginning is. But they did not know. Throughout the story, they work out the opposites of other words such as high and low, light and heavy. In the end they work out the opposite of the beginning at the end of the story. This is another lovely book from Jeffers with his distinctive illustrations. Very understandable and provides with less obvious opposites. Very enjoyable

    6. As a teacher this would be great as a teaching book about opposites and it can teach readers about it as well, without having to ask about what it is. The cat in this is also used as a motif and is with them the whole time. I also saw that their color clothes would change. I liked this one because of how teachable it is and I’ve never seen a book like this. It also is a series and can use them all to teach with.

    7. I was kind of torn about this one because I love the story, but I found the illustrations super creepy. That's probably just a mean thingbut not a fan. Like I said, though, the story is good, and the ending gave me a little chuckle.

    8. A book for very young readers to learn the basics of the language, here, dealing with the opposites. Charming enough, useful enough, but with wit and cleverness which mark Jeffers writing distinctly. The illustrations are very, very simple, but oddly scruffy and funny looking.

    9. This book was okay. I don't like the illustrations much due to one specific feature on the faces of the characters: the nose. Weird. Otherwise, it's a pretty simple book about opposites.

    10. This is an informal book for K+. One unique feature of this book is how many different ways you can use it to teache opposites

    11. Jeffers, Oliver. The Hueys in What’s the Opposite? New York: Philomel, 2015Illustrator Oliver JeffersRecommended for 3 – 5-year-olds.Concept bookThis is a delightful and simple book that explores the concept of opposites. The book begins with a simple question: what is the opposite of beginning? However, this questions turns out to be too difficult to be answered at the beginning, so the author introduces other opposites in a fun, simple and clever way until the end where the answer to the f [...]

    12. When a child is very young they don’t have the ability to grasp what their hands are, never mind complex matters of State, but eventually they all must start to learn. One way to achieve this is by reading fun books about the alphabet or numbers, but not all concepts are as clear as letters and numbers. What about the concept of opposites? How do you define to a 16 month year old why one thing is opposite to the other? Thankfully, you don’t need to know the answer as the Hueys are on hand to [...]

    13. The Hueys are back with another book, this one focused on opposites. One Huey starts by asking another what the opposite of beginning is, but that stumps the other one. So they move on to easier opposites like here and there, up and down, yes and no. Each of the opposites is acted out by the characters with lots of humorous touches that make the book a delight to read and share. As always, the Hueys have exactly the right tone for a preschool crowd, this time making the concept of opposites grea [...]

    14. If you've followed my blog for any amount of time, you will know that I'm a die-hard fan of Oliver Jeffers. The man is seriously funny and I love his distinct illustrations.I've been reading What's the Opposite to my five year old, and she loves it. She gets the humor in Jeffers's books and likes his unique way of teaching concepts. While this book isn't quite as quirky as None the Number, it is still a hit in our house. We've learned opposites like up and down, half full and half empty, and eve [...]

    15. This is a fun concept picture book that might even have older students scratching their heads. Obvious opposites like up and down and high and low end with a tree being chopped down so the kitten stuck in the top branches could get down. The kitten is thankful but a cup of coffee is smashed. Unlucky is being stranded on a hot, desert island. Lucky is a fan washing ashore of the hot, desert island; but the fan requires electricity! Unlucky again. What's the difference between half full and half e [...]

    16. I've read all of the books (so far) in the series about The Hueys by Oliver Jeffers. This book is very humorous and depicts myriad opposites.The stories are simple, and a bit too babyish for our girls now, but there's a sophisticated kind of witty humor that parents will appreciate. The illustrations are very cartoonish and the Hueys themselves look very jellybean-ish to me, but I think that adds to the simple sincerity of the book.

    17. What a GREAT storytime book for opposites. let's be real, though, Oliver Jeffers is the boss at picture books and everything he does is magical. As I read this I imagined explaining opposites to children, but kept wanting to use the word opposite lol. Sometimes it is better to show than tell and this book does that well. Also, the Hueys are back and they are so endearing!

    18. The Hueys explore various opposites like up and down, beginning and end, here and there, etc.This opposites book features some of the typical opposites with a few odd balls thrown in (like half-full and half-empty) as well as little, subtle humorous moments in the illustrations. An easy read, with simple illustrations but it is still fun.

    19. The Hueys are back - this time teaching kids about opposites. The most humorous pages are the deserted island and the words "Unlucky" (boat capsized and one oar out to sea), "lucky" (a boxed fan bobbing in the water, headed to the island), and "unlucky again" as he realizes there is no place to plug it in. Cute twist to end the story.

    20. So the goal for this year is to read every book Oliver Jeffers has illustrated. I really enjoy he's work. It's very artful :3 and calming. This isn't the kind of book I'll count toward my book goal this year though.(read on April 7, 2016) sarahgoodreaules.wordpress

    21. This book has the cutest illustrations. I found myself giggling at "heavy", poor little Huey.It's got very few words so great to read to your kids who are learning to read. It's a concept book on a giant scale!
