Double Take! A New Look at Opposites by Susan Hood and Jay Fleck


There are so many great things about DOUBLE TAKE! A New Look at Opposites by Susan Hood, illustrated by Jay Fleck. From the well crafted rhyming text to the charmingly retro illustrations to the concept itself, this picture book about perspective is a joy to read. Be sure to watch the book trailer at the end of this review!
DOUBLE TAKE! A New Look at Opposites begins like all other opposite books, left and right, yes or no, stop and go. But, "While most pairs are plain as DAY . . . and NIGHT, not every duo is so BLACK and WHITE.

DOUBLE TAKE! A New Look at Opposites goes on to show, with words (and their placement on the page) and illustrations, that it's all about perspective and how you look at the world around you. Hood wraps things up with these wonderful words:

Turn things around! Give them a twist. Find a new VIEW that you might have MISSED! A brand new direction, a closer inspection, might lead to reflection and maybe . . . perfection."

And, be sure to check out more awesome art by Jay Fleck! I shared a few images that made me smile and felt familiar - like a t-shirt design from the very cool threadless. And guess what? Under the name  Don't Call Me Blanket, you can get Jay Fleck's brilliant designs to wear on your back - or front!
