Big Bot, Small Bot: A Book of Robot Opposites (Hardcover)
Robots are perennial kid-favorites. In this series, acclaimed illustrator Marc Rosenthal's vividly colored, retro-futuristic robots encourage kids age 2 to 5 to lift the flaps and learn all about basic concepts.
Big Bot, Small Bot invites young readers to play with robots who demonstrate opposites such as "quiet" and "loud," "front" and "back," and "full" and "empty." Each illustration in this interactive book is presented with a gatefold that, when lifted, transforms the image into its opposite! Simple yet endlessly entertaining, Big Bot, Small Bot is a perfect read-aloud for toddlers and preschoolers.
· Printed on sturdy, thick paper, these titles can stand up to the challenge of little hands and repeated readings
· Marc's illustrations can be seen regularly in The New Yorker, Time, Forbes, Fortune, The Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times, Boston Globe, and The Washington Post; his previous children's books have been described by The New York Times Book Review as "hugely appealing."
Artist Marc Rosenthal's new series of interactive concept books introduces a group of friendly, colorful, retro-futuristic robots that demonstrate counting, opposites, shapes, and colors through lift-the-flap gatefolds that transform each illustration in a kid-pleasing way.
