Push and Pull: Animal Opposites


Push and Pull: Animal Opposites
by Cecilia Minden (Author)

Booktalk: The BIG Picture

This Level 1 guided reader illustrates examples of “pushing and pulling” found in the animal kingdom.

#kidlit Writing Lesson: the small details

The concept of opposites is shown in clear, simple terms in this beginning reader. On one page an animal pushes:

A cat can push through a flap in the door.

TURN THE PAGE and readers see a different animal pulling:

This dog is pulling in its leash.

The opposites are paired by types–these animals are both pets–so the book also teaches categorization.
