    Board books aren t commonly thought of for their artistic subtlety When the target audience is kids who may still be several years away from learning to read, flashy color choices and zany images tend to be the style of choice, and those who do it best are much in demand by publishers of board books Author illustrator Tana Hoban, however, has chosen to go another route in Black on White Evoking the subtlety of classic Japanese artistic imagery, Ms Hoban has filled this book with pictures th Board books aren t commonly thought of for their artistic subtlety When the target audience is kids who may still be several years away from learning to read, flashy color choices and zany images tend to be the style of choice, and those who do it best are much in demand by publishers of board books Author illustrator Tana Hoban, however, has chosen to go another route in Black on White Evoking the subtlety of classic Japanese artistic imagery, Ms Hoban has filled this book with pictures that are nothan darkened profiles of the objects they represent, whether a butterfly, a batch of cookies, a pair of eyeglasses or any of a dozen other objects both common and somewhat less so The effect is bare and unsensational, but that is the point, and I believe Tana Hoban has done good for the world of infant literature by creating this intriguing book Black on White may not catch the eye of the average infant or toddler used to gorging on intense color palettes in all the books he or she reads, but its primary intent is to teach the youngest children recognition of the objects seen with nothingto go on than a simple silhouette, and Black on White is sure to accomplish that objective at least as well as itsflamboyant counterparts Tana Hoban is a good artist with an impressive creative mind, and her work in Black on White shows her willingness not only to operate outside the box of conventional thought in writing and illustrating for pre readers, but to take risks in a profession that doesn t always reward such boldness with tangible success Black on White is an unadorned ship set adrift in the vast sea of board books, yet I m sure I won t forget it I would at least consider giving it one and a half stars, which in my judgement is a respectable rating, especially for a book that has no plot to buoy the images it presents I wouldn t hesitate to recommend Black on White to the right sort of pre reader

    This book has no words, just black shapes on a white background Yet it is perfect for a 0 4 month old As baby s eyes begin to develop they really like contrast and bold colors, or black and white This is one of the only books where my baby will actually let her eyes focus on the images it s also fun to talk about the pictures with her.

    While this is useful for propping up and letting my daughter stare at during floor time, I haven t found too much enjoyment in the reading it Since it s wordless, the adult is responsible for providing their own text While this can be quite interesting, it s a bit difficult to come up with things to say about objects presented in such basic silhouette art The options are limitless, but we still find that when we get to two pinwheel esque circles with dots that we re stuck with saying somethin While this is useful for propping up and letting my daughter stare at during floor time, I haven t found too much enjoyment in the reading it Since it s wordless, the adult is responsible for providing their own text While this can be quite interesting, it s a bit difficult to come up with things to say about objects presented in such basic silhouette art The options are limitless, but we still find that when we get to two pinwheel esque circles with dots that we re stuck with saying something like Well, that might be crackers, or something I also found that the pages were a bit inconsistent I love the page with a butterfly opposite from a maple leaf the resonance between the images is gorgeous On the other hand, the first page of a bib and knife fork set seems cartoony and dull in contrast

    I think Black on White might be too young for my 8 month old baby The bold black and white images probably would have beenengaging to him several months ago but I think the brilliant thing about this title is the velcro tab closure and accordion style format which make it easy for a baby to open up He spenttime opening it and banging it on the floor than looking at the images but that seems like a good way to use a book at this age I agree with a previous reviewer who recommended I think Black on White might be too young for my 8 month old baby The bold black and white images probably would have beenengaging to him several months ago but I think the brilliant thing about this title is the velcro tab closure and accordion style format which make it easy for a baby to open up He spenttime opening it and banging it on the floor than looking at the images but that seems like a good way to use a book at this age I agree with a previous reviewer who recommended the Wee Art Gallery cards Those images havecomplex patterns which continue to engage him and the thick card format are easy for him to carry around and flip through

    This accordion fold board book combines Hoban s Black on White and White on Black and provides stimulating images for Ellis to look at during mat and tummy time Oddly, Ellis s favorite images to look at are the buttons and the flower This book doesn t exactly teach pre literacy skills, and often there are enough interesting things for my baby to stare at ceiling fan, window, picture frames that she doesn t really need this, but it s fun to pull out every once in a while and point out the dif This accordion fold board book combines Hoban s Black on White and White on Black and provides stimulating images for Ellis to look at during mat and tummy time Oddly, Ellis s favorite images to look at are the buttons and the flower This book doesn t exactly teach pre literacy skills, and often there are enough interesting things for my baby to stare at ceiling fan, window, picture frames that she doesn t really need this, but it s fun to pull out every once in a while and point out the different objects to her

    Maybe I should make my baby a goodreads account, but for now I ll at least put them on mine, since I m reading them too Black on White is a high contrast board book My one month old preemie loves to lay on her blanket on the floor and look at the book Sometimes, if she s too cranky to lay by herself, I hold her and talk to her about the pictures We discovered how much she likes looking at high contrast from a book called Look Look and so I checked this book out of the library for her to Maybe I should make my baby a goodreads account, but for now I ll at least put them on mine, since I m reading them too Black on White is a high contrast board book My one month old preemie loves to lay on her blanket on the floor and look at the book Sometimes, if she s too cranky to lay by herself, I hold her and talk to her about the pictures We discovered how much she likes looking at high contrast from a book called Look Look and so I checked this book out of the library for her to stare at too
