We like to read



Hippopposites by Janik Coat *

We actually bought this one as a Christmas gift for our nephew but I managed to take a few sneaky pics before I wrapped it up.

I love the graphic design style illustrations along with the simple shapes and format. I also love the addition of pages like 'opaque and transparent' and 'clear and blurry' which make for a more interesting read than the usual contrasts of opposite colours or sizes. I love that you could read it to a baby but actually as the contrasts are a little more advanced than usual it really suits a toddler very well.

I've added a button to this series if you would like to link up just enter the following HTML underneath your post! 
all posts with buttons linked up with be shared on my Twitter and Pinterest :)

What a cool way to learn about opposites!

I love that, such simple but effective illustrations!

Jenni said...

Woah! This is amazing, I am off to track one down. I actually think it might even be helpful for some of my husbands students as it displays things in such a clear way.

Love it - it's just the sort of thing I'd choose for younger kiddos as a pressie too - genius name!

Cute book - I like the soft and rough pages. Big words for a baby book - opaque - wow!

My son loves his touch and feel books, but this one takes it that little further. I'll be reviewing a book in 2014, so I will be sure to link up then.

Mrs Chasing the Donkey said...

PS: I know a few other bloggers who do book reviews so I will send them this link now also to link up.

I thought that this was a photography book at first tbh. It looks great.

Mari said...

I like this because it forced me to look further than the Black and White that I initially thought before reading ;)

Kelly Rae said...

that book looks supercute! I love the blurry page :)

Charly Dove said...

What a great book - it really makes you concentrate. That might be because I have a toddler and she'd probably love this :)

Ah! My friend (who's nickname is "Hippo") is celebrating his daughter's 1st birthday next month and I just placed an order for this book as one of her birthday gifts. PERFECT! Thanks so much for sharing. Can't wait to see their excitement :) -Misty
