Up Up Up Down

(2) PS This opposites book follows one active brown-skinned toddler and stay-at-home-father throughout a busy, fun-filled day. "Up, up, up!" as Baby tries to climb out of the crib, followed on the next page by "Down!" At breakfast: "No, no, no" to scrambled eggs, oatmeal, and toast; "yes!" to blueberries. Clear, unfussy digitally painted pencil illustrations in subdued hues against lots of white space make the story line clear.
