If the elephant is big, what does that make the lizards? And if the cheetah is fast, what does that make the turtle?
When the lion comes, the tiger goes. The toucan is up in a tree, while the anteater is down on the ground. The flamingo is sure she’s nicer than the gorilla—who is really pretty grouchy. And did you know the giraffe is tall? He knows it. He’s happy to lean over the arctic exhibit to let the penguins know how short they are.
In this zoo, the animals are opposites in a whole lot of ways. If the elephant is big, what does that make the lizards? And if the cheetah is fast, what does that make the turtle? Come along for a tour through the exhibits as we find out just how different these creatures can be.
In this lighthearted book about opposites, the playful artwork hints at the emotional quirks and differences that sometimes accompany our physical traits. Written by Harriet Ziefert, You and Me: We’re Opposites is illustrated by Ethan Long and published by Blue Apple Books.
