It's never too early to start kids reading. Even in infancy, young eyes can begin to make connections between images on a page and the real thing. Black on White is an ideal first book, and one that will continue to fascinate the very youngest readers as they grow. Exquisitely simple, solid black pictures of everyday objects--a banana, a duck, a bottle--against a black background provide high contrast for developing eyes. This wordless picture book encourages caregivers to engage the child as they "read" together: "Oh look, a boat, that looks like your bath toy, doesn't it?"
