Publisher's Description

How would you describe a hippopotamus? Big might be the first word that comes to mind. What about a whale? Gigantic? Immense? How about enormous! What if you had to find a word for the biggest animal of them all—a dinosaur. Mammoth? Humongous? Colossal!

With its bright pictures of animals in all shapes and sizes, this terrific read-aloud introduces young children to the language of comparisons, synonyms, and antonyms.

Editorial Reviews

“An ingenious treatment of not only comparisons but also synonyms and antonyms that all the while exposes children to some fantastic vocabulary...Coffelt goes above and beyond the ho-hum...The bright colors and clearly identifiable features will draw readers' eyes, while the lack of labels will beg children to yell out the animals' names. A solid addition to storytime, as well as to the shelves of English teachers.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Teachers looking for an innovative way to introduce synonyms and superlatives will certainly find much to work with here, and perhaps young listeners will be better able to express themselves after exposure to books of its ilk.” —School Library Journal

“A great read-aloud to begin a discussion about the concepts and show the fun of wordplay.” —Booklist
