From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-A simple rhyming story that illustrates the concept of opposites. The book is narrated by Zoe, a joyful, red-cheeked young lady brimming with self confidence as she executes gymnast routines demonstrating inside and outside, over and under, etc., before an admiring audience. The rhymes are sometimes clever and sometimes forced, but they serve their purpose. The bright, colorful pictures succeed admirably. Only occasionally, such as with high and low on the balance beam, is it difficult to see what is being demonstrated. Boldface print and varied type size reinforce the concepts. The book ends with a list of related titles, including Bruce McMillan's Becca Backward, Becca Frontward (Lothrop, 1986; o.p.) and Tana Hoban's Exactly the Opposite (Greenwillow, 1990), both of which have photographs. Libraries owning those titles may not need yet another one, but where a somewhat lighter instructional touch is needed, this will fit the bill nicely.
