Mailman Fox discovers the wind is playful today. Letters are sent up/down, left/right, high/low, near/far, and over/under. As Fox tries to gather the scattered mail, many animals help him. On the last page, everyone gets a heart-felt “Thank you!” Each pair of opposites gets a spread. Wood’s illustrations are uncluttered and keep the concepts easy to understand.The narrative is suggested by the illustrations so encourage your child or small group of children to “read” the pictures and expand the story.
