PreSchool-Grade 1 A dozen pairs of opposites illustrated with color photographs of a young girl. This is a well-designed book, with large, clear photographs to illustrate each of the pairs printed on facing pages and with the concept word printed in bold letters below each photograph. Becca is charming, the photographs are beautiful, and, in most instances, the concepts are very clear. Some explanation might be necessary in using this book with very literal young childrenparticularly in the presentation of the first two pairs. Bottom shows that part of Becca in shorts while top depicts her from bangs to waist pulling on a shirt. These are subtle rather than common uses of these two terms. Above catches Becca in midair over her bed while below shows her beneath the bed; over and under might be better understood by young children. With such cautions in mind, however, this should be a welcome addition to the world of concept books, providing useful contrast to such comparison books as Hoban's Over, Under & Through & Other Spatial Concepts (Macmillan, 1973) and Peter Spier's Fast-Slow High-Low (Doubleday, 1972) .
