One of my favorites in celebration of Alice Provensen, who passed away at age 99 just weeks ago, on April 23, 2018. 

Author/Illustrator: Alice and Martin Provensen

Age: 2-5
Opening: (see spread below)
Summary: concept book of opposites.

KarensOpposites2Themes: opposites, siblings, children

KarensOpposites3.jpgI like this book because: It is a PERFECT concept book. Yup. Think I’m exaggerating? Go find a copy and we can talk.

KarensOpposites6Resources: Look for other opposites in your home, classroom. Read more about the Provensen. According to Alice, “we were a true collaboration. Martin and I really were one artist.” Read the NYT obituary here.
