KIRKUS REVIEW

 From New Zealand, a simple, attractive concept book that explores ten pairs of words in situations sure to interest the very young--``open'' and ``closed'' (eyes, mouth, door), ``round'' and ``square'' (glasses, cake), etc. Concise boldface captions (on one spread, ``hat on/hat off,'' ``shoes on/shoes off'') give early readers an opportunity to make connections. Turner's detailed, intensely realistic color drawings of little girls and boys, plus a few familiar toys and pets, are full of life; unfortunately, every one of these preschoolers is white. Still, an appealing book that will be useful in many collections. (Nonfiction/Picture book. 1-5)
