I admit it, back in elementary school, I was that kid who could not keep Arctic and Antarctic straight. Therefore, I was looking for a book that would help to explain, in pictures, an easy way to keep it straight. Some children need a visual to set ideas. Unfortunately, this is not that type of book.
Erik Brooks uses the term polar opposites to show personality and trait opposites.
Alex might be a big polar from the Arctic and Zina a tiny penguin from Antarctic, but what makes them individuals has nothing to do with them being the polar opposites that I was looking for.
What Mr. Brooks is trying to show, is that no matter where you come from, no matter how neat or messy or loud or quiet, there is a way to meet in the middle and become friends.
If you are looking for a “can’t we all just get along” type of book, this is would be it. If you are looking for a visual type of book that explains the differences between the two poles, this will not fit the bill.
