Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Studies show very young babies are most captivated by black and white, so Tana Hoban has created two new board books using high contrast black and white images. Babies will begin to stare at these objects and in time, with the assistance of a caregiver, begin to identify them. The companion book is Who Are They?
School Library Journal
PreS-Hoban adds to her string of handsome, well-designed books for very young children. These black-and-white board books will attract infants beginning to focus their eyes as well as to toddlers ready to name or talk about objects and animals. What Is That? features large white silhouettes of familiar objects such as a pacifier, stuffed bunny, a stroller, a table and a chair, set against a glossy black background. A balloon on a partly coiled string appears ready to float across the page. In Who Are They? black silhouettes of animals are displayed against flat white pages. The positioning of parents opposite children creates interest and offers counting possibilities, as the number of young animals increases by one with each flip of the page. Two titles that are sure to be popular with the board-book set.-Nancy Seiner, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
