Marthe Jocelyn and Tom Slaughter explore opposites in this gorgeous introduction to modern art for small readers. Cut paper images introduce children to color, form, and design as they explore tall giraffes and short mice, squares and circles, light day and dark night.
An art book as well as a sound learning tool, Over Under is stunningly simple and simply stunning.
