Rhymes, opposites, facts about opossums. This book has it all. Opossums are the only marsupials that live in North America. Their babies are called joeys, just like baby kangaroos. In Opossum Opposites, Gina Gallois has assembled a wonderful collection of facts about opossums for children who are curious about the animal kingdom. How many babies can a mama opossum grow at once? How long do they stay in the pouch? How old are they when they grow fur? What time of day do they like to play? What do they like to eat? Do they like to get dirty? How do they talk to each other? What do they do when they are afraid? This book, illustrated by Aleksandra Bobrek, has answers to all of these questions.
Gina Gallois is fascinated by opossums. When you read this book, you will be too. Opossums are a valuable part of our environment and they help to keep us healthy by eating ticks. Opossum Opposites is a charming introduction to the life and activities of opossums. I enjoyed learning about opossums and had fun following how the author worked the opposites into her rhymes. The illustrations enhance the text by showing the opossums doing the unusual things the author describes, like hanging upside down from the mama opossum’s tail. I recommend this book for classrooms and libraries and the homes of children who are curious about animals.
