So glad this book turned up on a day I get to see my niece, so I didn't have long to see her reaction.  She has loved the books I have shared with her so far and she seemed to love this one very much.
No words just bright glossy pictures, mostly black and white with an accent if colour.  This caught Bubba's attention straight away.  At the moment her eyes are more drawn to the patterned pages, I think that's because at almost five months the repeating patterns are so interesting.  No doubt as she grows and notices the animals they will take her attention.
I love that this book is so solid, it's should last her a long time despite her desire to eat everything in sight.

This sturdy board book is perfect for little hands - it's just the right size for them to hold and resilient enough to survive even the most enthusiastic baby! The rounded page corners make it baby friendly too.
There are no words. Instead there are six double pages, each featuring a different animal and a pattern. The pattern echoes some aspect of the animal picture - the dog's spots, the flower the cow has in her mouth, the bunny rabbit's bow tie - and keeps to the same colour palette. The book, as you'd expect from the title, is mainly in black and white. This is because a baby's developing eyesight responds in particular to high-contrast images, such as these, that are black and white with sharp outlines. Each page also has a touch of detail in one other colour.  I read this book with my son and the striking images certainly caught his attention. As soon as we'd finished, he wanted to read it again. We've read it lots of times since; it's a very popular addition to baby Sam's bookshelf.

This book is just perfect for babies. The book is a board book so very sturdy. The illustrations and colours are so crisp and bright. My 6 month old niece was mesmerised by the colours and patterns. My 2.5 year old also loved this book. He enjoyed pointing out the names of the animals and the colours too.

Fantastic book for babies. Very sturdy as it is a board book and easy to wipe clean. The black and white pictures have a spot if colour which is good to help babies eyes focus. Good introduction to learning some animals. We had lots of smiles when reading this to baby.

My daughter loves this book. We've used it from an early age and she still loves it now at 10 months. She loves stroking the different animals and pointing out the colours. I know she will be enjoying it for a long time too.

This is a really cute little book that you can introduce to your child from birth as the black and white imagery is suitable for newborns. My daughter is 1 and she really liked the pop of colour on each page and I told her what each animal was and she copied what I said. It's a book that you could definitely use to introduce your child to reading and learning.

We looked at this book with my 3 year old daughter. I found it to be a very sturdy and durable book but was a bit to young for my daughter and found it did not hold her interest for long. So I then looked at it again but with my 1 year old neice. This book was perfect for her, the contacts of colour kept her attention  and she loved looking at all the pages and it was was easy for her to turn the pages due to the chunky cardboard.
