I Say, You Say Opposites! by Tad Carpenter

I say small, you say BIG! I say night, you say DAY! This interactive and endlessly entertaining lift-the-flap board book emphasizes word prediction, an important language development step for young readers. As parent readers call out the word on each page, the child reader is encouraged to triumphantly answer with the opposite word, hidden beneath the flap. Fun and educational, this call-and-response technique offers a playful interactive reading experience and is a delightful and exciting way for children to learn words. With a bright, retro-style palette and round-eyed animals evoking the style of Mo Willems' naughty pigeon, the I SAY, YOU SAY board book series is perfect for today's hip babies and parents.


Little ones will enjoy the repetition and interactivity of these offerings, celebrating as they correctly guess the words hiding under the flaps. Carpenter's predicable, interactive titles in the I Say, You Say series offer appealing introductions to basic concepts just right for toddlers and preschoolers
