One subgenre of children’s book is the “book of opposites.” In these books, you teach children words by leveraging words they already know, like “high” vs. “low.” So naturally I was intrigued when I saw the Star Trek Book of Opposites.
Naturally, they’re using 40-year-old stills from a show that was never intended to be the source of a children’s book. So some items work OK:
And here’s “Many:”
But they soon start getting odd, as such:
Calm is (if you will permit me) a logical choice, but I’m pretty sure Captain Kirk is being possessed by an alien consciousness there. Sleep tight, kiddos!
Apart and Together is the sequence from my origin story, and then here’s Hot and Cold.
I’m not sure what’s happening with Chekov up there, but I’m sure it’s mortal peril. Sulu is close to freezing to death on an alien world in the second one.
So, to round out this journey into childhood trauma, let me leave you with Angry.
Because it’s never too soon to talk to your child about pon farr.
