Book Review :: Double Take!

Double Take! - Written by Susan Hood and illustrated by Jay Fleck

"When it comes to opposites, it’s all a matter of perspective! Lively text and fun retro art engage kids in the finer points of a favourite concept."

Double Take! is a playful and lyrical read aloud.  I really love the concept, and the opportunity for some interesting discussion.  What a cool way to introduce perspective and relative relationships to kids.  There's a level of complexity that you don't always find in children's books, and you may get a few questions as you read.  Or your little ones might just enjoy the rhyme and go with it, as mine did.  The illustrations are bold and engaging for any who aren't quite grasping the meaning yet, so there's pretty much something for everyone.  Basically, this is a clever little number!

Check it out for yourself, Double Take! is in stores now.
