Bizzy and Dill decide to celebrate Opposite Day by spending their time doing the opposite of what they usually do, including starting with dinner instead of breakfast, wearing their pajama pants on their heads instead of their legs, and singing a book and reading a song. A silly book about two great friends for ages 4 and up.
There are no words in this book, just a picture puzzle. Can you find the one thing that is almost like the others? This is a good exercise in how things can be put into categories, and also a little tricky because some of the “almosts” are cleverly disguised. Recommended for ages 3 and up.

A lot of books are set up in a traditional novel style, but others use letters and notes to tell the story instead. This can be a really fun way to read and get to know the characters. It may even spur an interest in writing some letters yourself! I’m sure a friend would love to read the story of your days in a letter just for them!
