Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, December 15, 2011:
“An intriguing examination of the shades of black.”
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
In this little board book, there are various black things to touch and feel, scratch and sniff, as well as some flaps to lift. The multi-sensations start with a black rabbit and its soft furry patch to touch. A young girl has a cat mask and the whiskers are stiff and strong. Once again, black is featured in a velvet dress and this is followed by a spread of black licorice with a scratch and smell patch. (I do often wonder how long these smell patches will last.) The magician's hat is part of a spread with a flap to lift. What a surprise when no rabbit pops out of this hat. The book closes with a view of the night sky and some sparkling stars. Some studies have shown that babies relate to black and white images before they can distinguish colors. Consequently, this book may have particular appeal to the very young. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews
An intriguing examination of the shades of black. Clear photographs depict objects associated with a color often overlooked. The interaction between image and text creates some interesting parallels; a young African-American girl grabs for a cat mask while its animal counterpart studies her competition nearby. Some sparkly stars offer some shine, but overall, the emphasis addresses the complexities of darkness in all its variations. An element of surprise provides some punch (a bunny is featured at the beginning, while a bat is in the magician's hat). The narrator's childlike voice has a pleasing authenticity; velvet is described not as formal clothing but as "dress-up disguises." The focus shifts from the tangible with a gentle whisper: "and black is… a sparkling night sky high above… all that! / Sweet dreams." Touch-and-feel details include the cat mask's whiskers (firmly anchored to the page) or the baby rabbit's soft fur. Scratch-and-sniff licorice smells genuine. There's a lot to explore away from the hues of the rainbow. (Board book. 6 mos.-3)
