Begin Smart Quack! Quack!
Lamb says “maa,” doggie says “woof,” crow says “caw caw”—and baby laughs with joy. The shiny embossed and laminated pictures of animals seem to jump from the page, inviting babies to reach out and touch. As they become more familiar with the book, children will enjoy imitating the sounds each friendly creature makes.

This book is recommended for babies older than one month, but I find the color scheme, with it's use of black, white, and red appeals to our one month old son. He also seems to get a kick out of the repetitive sounds of the animals. I'd say a good early book for infants younger than the those suggested on the back cover. And to think it was one of the books weeded out by our local library! We read it several times a night, several nights a week.
I liked most things about this book. The illustrations presented the animals in a way that would be appealing to babies. It had the animal sounds. But I thought if all you did was just read it straight through it was a bit scripted. Parents could use a book like Lucy Cousin's Farm Animals and create their own more interesting text that covered the same information and more based on their child's reactions.
