It was Opposite Day in class and the teacher wanted the students to sit still and try to do the opposite of the word she told them. The children giggled and then they all shook their heads. She asked Charles to open the door and he went and shut the door and said it was the opposite of open. She asked Jade to fill the glass and she took it to the sink and turned it upside down. Jade said empty was the opposite of full. The teacher then asked Dinopotamus to get her the big box. He knew it was Opposite Day and the box looked like a square. He wondered if a ball was the opposite of a box and if a circle was the opposite of square. Let's read the book to learn what else Dinopotamus did on Opposite Day in class.

Opposite Day for Dinopotamus by Lois Wickstrom is a delightful way of teaching children opposite words without making it stressful for them. The idea of having a character like Dinopotamus when it comes to teaching children about opposites makes the book interactive and learning fun. The illustrations make the concept tangible to readers and easy for them to understand and learn quickly. The portrayal of Dinopotamus is adorable and children will find him appealing and cute. It is a good book for tutors and parents to read out loud to kids and make the learning of opposites interactive and interesting. Learning can be made fun for kids and Opposite Day for Dinopotamus by Lois Wickstrom does just that.
