Hello, Good-bye An Opposites Book Like No Other From The Inimitable Arlene Alda Author Photographer Arlene Alda Is Back With Another Delightful Photo Essay This Time She Tackles The Concept Of Opposites With Her Keen Sense Of Humor And Sharp Eye This Slightly Off Beat Collection Of Images Is Fodder For The Imagination An Opposites Book Like No Other For Children From Five To Eight, And Those Who Still Remember The Magic Of First Discoveries, Arlene S Through The Lens Perceptions Offer New Ways To See And Think About Those Remarkable Everyday Things Around Us This Is The Fourth Book In A Series That Not Only Instructs But Also Raises Visual Awareness And Fine Tunes Observational Skills Look For The Book Of ZZZs, Did You Say Pears , And Here A Face, There A Face A good resource to teach children about opposites Single words partnered with complimentary photos to describe the word action For the very introductory reader. I rarely give books one star, but I was completely unimpressed with this book The photographs were okay, but most were poor examples of the descriptive words This could be confusing to a child learning opposites I would not recommend this book. Very nice opposites book, most of these type are illustrations it s nice to finally see one with really photos of things kids might actually see. I like Arlene Alda s works, but have mixed results with them when reading them to children Some like Here a Face, There a Face are tremendously popular Others just get sort of a nod and a look like can we move on Hello, Good bye lies somewhere s in between The problem being that the photographs aren t necessarily the best for small fry.Cold and Hot, for example, are well done There s an evergreen covered with snow on one page and a palm tree on a beach on the opposing page The images are attractive and convey the ideas well But to give you an example of where things don t work out as well, let s look at Old and New.In both cases there is architecture An old building Europe on a river versus a new abstract looking building Now you and I and even older kids would understand why one would think the abstract painting building was New but two year olds don t have the cultural context to make that connection and heaven knows but most children I know aren t that interested in buildings.Talking Points Hello, Good Bye is a concept book that addresses contrasts It s a better book for slightly older children.The pictures are typical of Alda s work And this book, like all of hers, are certainly worth sharing with children, either at home or at school Good LibraryFind.Text consist of single words Accelerated Reading level given as generic 1.Pam T mom and reviewer at BooksForKids reviews.com
