Opuestos: Mexican Folk Art Opposites in English and Spanish

Cynthia Weill, Author , illus. by Quirino Santiago and Martín Santiago. Cinco Puntos $14.95 (32p) ISBN 978-1-933693-56-9

This bilingual companion to the alphabet book ABeCedarios also features images of Oaxacan sculptures (albeit from a different group of artists), but instead focuses on opposites. Wood statues of various animals face each other on each spread, colored with bright spots and stripes and set against equally vivid backgrounds. In a nod to Aesop, an orange hare (“Fast / Rápido”) is seen across from a turtle (“Slow / Lenta”), while a spotted dog and a black wolf both sit beside chalky images of the sun and moon to demonstrate day and night. Direct and charming. Ages 2–5. (Aug.)
