Overview

Share this book with the baby in your life. It’s never too early to read together!

From the eminent photographer and acclaimed book creator Tana Hoban, this bestselling large format board book features bold black-and-white high-contrast images to engage babies and very young children.

Tana Hoban’s board books have sold more than a million copies and are beloved by teachers, librarians, parents, and readers. A perfect gift for new parents and babies.

Before they are able to clearly see colors, babies respond to the strong contrast between black and white, which makes this the perfect first book for young, developing brains. Experiencing bold black-and-white contrast helps stimulate development in the retina and the optic nerve.

About Black on White and White on Black, Publishers Weekly said, “Hoban’s compositions are so supple and her layouts so well balanced that she casts kind of a spell . . . magical.”

Baby Liam loves this, I couldn't get it out of his mouth in the library to check it out. He grabs for it as soon as he spots it. Daddy's not so fond of concept books he can't read, but for baby to play on his won., this is excellent. We'll have to get him a copy of his own.

I have given this book so many times as a baby gift. I think parents, especially new parents, are eager to begin reading to their child, but struggle with what books are appropriate to share with a baby. This book is a perfect first book for babies that are too small to touch pages. My children as 3-6 month olds seemed to really focus on the pages. They defeinitely seemed to have favorite pages that kept their attention as you move and rotate the book. The bead and buttons pages seemed to be especially riveting. I would recommend this book and think it should be in every nursery. I love giving books as baby presents because it's something the child won't instantly outgrow. Now my toddler and preschooler show this book to their baby dolls.
