Overview

Look, look! Children run, fish swim, stars shine . . . all for baby's eyes to see. This sturdy board book, full of high-contrast black-and-white cut-paper art perfect for staring at, is just the thing for the eyes of the youngest babies. A few words in curving red type on each spread describe the scenes — a car races, a cat stretches, flowers bloom— and extend the book's age appeal so that it will be fascinating to older babies, too. Striking and stylish, Look Look! is the ideal first board book for babies just beginning to look and learn.Peter Linenthal is an illustrator who has taught art in elementary schools for twenty years.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This board book responds to the findings that very young children react best to high contrast black and white illustrations. A clever feature is the reversing of several images, so that what appears on the left-hand page in black and white appears on the right-hand side in white and black.

This is a wonderful first book for babies for the early months. The black and white pictures hold their attention.

This is not a 'pretty' book in the traditional sense but it will be the first one to catch a baby's attention. Hard to find on the shelves--have a couple on hand to give to new parents/grandparents.

Back in the day, I read this book hundreds of times, and I still love it--so much so that I've sent it to pretty much every newborn's parent I know, and it has met with universal acclaim (in my circle of friends anyway). Highly recommended.
