INSIDE OUTSIDE, by Anne-Margot Ramstein, Matthias Aregui, Candlewick Studio


From the creators of Before After comes another striking book of opposites, this time exploring the concepts of within and without with bright, bold graphics.

Safe inside its shell, a baby bird prepares to brave the world. A spelunker descends into a wide and glittering cavern while fellow explorers cluster around a crack in the earth. Fire-red ants march busily around their anthill, oblivious of a hungry anteater waiting above. Smart and stylish, this oversized art book takes a unique approach to the concept of inside and outside, offering clever and unexpected examples that will delight readers and spark conversations about context and perspective. Inside Outside is sure to find a place in collections, on coffee tables, in classrooms, and anywhere curious minds can be found.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

This is a fantastic book with big, bright and beautiful illustrations that show the opposites, inside and outside side by side. If you’re looking for a book that will help children learn these opposites, then this is a fantastic choice.

The book is oversized, creative and uses great examples to catch the eye and interest of young readers. There are no words, just illustrations, so this book is essentially a visual aid. But a very effective visual aid.

I highly recommend libraries stock up on this one, and every household gets it for their first readers, young learners and anyone else who would benefit from big, bold, art.
