This book is great to stimulate the use of black/white visuals for babies. My niece who just turned one really enjoys looking at books and the stimulation it gives her. We didn't have any Tana Hoban books for her, but I would definitely look into it when I can children of my own. This book was in our text in Chapter 4 pertaining to 1st baby books.
Mama showed me this picture book today - white pictures on black backgrounds. She told me what each picture was and compared it to stuff in my daily life. Even though the pictures were made for my vision right now, I lost interest before the last two pages.
I like the concept of all these Hoban books. We own two of her books, so even though I looked at this one at the library, I didn't see any need to bring it home for William. This one was alright, but completely unremarkable compared to the others.
