Make learning fun with this pop-up introduction to animal opposites from award-winning artist, Petr Horá?ek.
Turn the pages, lift the flaps and see animals of all shapes and sizes bring to life the world of opposites. From slow snail to fast cheetah, heavy hippo to light butterfly, smooth frog to prickly porcupine, Petr Horá?ek’s pop-up animals encourage early literacy, language and communication in a fun and simple way. Each page is an absolute delight, with stunning illustrations that are bold in colour and texture and will have young readers captivated and engaged from the beginning. Lift the flaps as you travel through the book to unveil more and more animals, building up to a brilliantly satisfying ending – learning has never been so much fun!
Animal Opposites is a beautiful gift book and an essential addition to a young child’s library. An absolute must for Horá?ek fans and parents who are keen to instill a love of art and learning from a very young age.
