When it comes to early learners, the simplest books are the best. Flip books, simple alphabet picture books, counting books… Children who are too young to read alone and too young to site through pages of long prose love to interact with colourful books with cut-outs and fun pictures.
Hippopposites is an opposites book like no other. Simple pairing of words, both expected (big/ small) and unexpected (clear/ blurry), are humorously illustrated with a graphic and loveable red hippopotamus. Bold colours and unexpected die-cuts and textures spice up this elegantly engaging board book.
