It looks like there are a lot of learning opportunities in this book. The layers include appreciation for different opinions and understanding opposite words. And the rhyming story will be fun to read aloud.

Some reviews on Amazon for 'I See Things From Where I Am'

- The concept of this book is fantastic. It conveys differing perspectives at first in a very literal way and then in more abstract ways. It shows how it’s okay to have different opinions. The book shows it through a father and son but it could apply to any relationship, even among friends. This is a great life lesson for kids. I really liked how the author incorporated antonyms into the verses.
- Educational picture book teaching the concept of opposites. There is humor in the book.
- Fun rhyming story - great for reading out loud!
