Fun, whimsical and delightful, “The Little Tacker’s Guide to OPPOSITES” will take young readers to an educational tour into the world of contradicting human emotions, personality and character traits. Created by Robert Standfield, this captivating book stimulates the creativity that rests within a child.

With very careful contouring and artistic precision, the playful and vivacious drawings in this book brings to life pairs of opposites, from depicting vivid images of anger and serenity, danger and safety, beauty and ugliness, health and sickness, strength and weakness.

This colorful book is a boon to all parents, caregivers, educators and most especially to young children who may have some cognitive difficulty with distinguishing various contradicting components in objects, people and circumstances. “The Little Tacker’s Guide to OPPOSITES” is a visual articulation of several concepts that many children may have difficulty in understanding.
