Everything that exists in the universe has an opposite, and this poetic journey captures the beauty of how none of these opposites remain pure or still

All opposites are complementary, one could not exist without the other, but opposites mix and blend all the time, and it is from this movement that the world as we know it springs forth in all its multicolored and diverse glory

This book shows 11 opposing forces of the universe:
- Moon and Sun - River and Mountain - Sky and Earth - Winter and Summer - Silence and Sound - Water and Fire - Beauty and Ugliness - Calm and Storm - Emotion and Reason - Feminine and Masculine Energy - Death and Life

Each opposing force is represented by a lyrical rhyme and an illustration that identifies each part of the pairing. This is followed by an observation to link how they blend and work together, along with a quote from a personality from the world of philosophy, art, literature, or science such as Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Walt Disney, Rudyard Kipling, L. Frank Baum, Antoine de Saint-Exup ry, and others.

Learning about opposites is foundational to help children develop math, observational, creative-thinking, and language skills. The mix of science, poetry, and art is structured in a way that children will be drawn into these 11 natural opposites that are part of everyday life. Perfect for STEM curriculums.
