Overview

Black on White by Tana Hoban

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.”

This is a perfect gift for newborns. They love looking at the stark black and white designs. This is a very educational activity for a newborn -- stimulating some good brain development. In the "olden days" we used to recommend making black and white designs and taping them to the sides of the crib or play area. These books allow for that, plus some good lap-reading time. Perfect newborn gift that will help make a smarter baby.

I received Tana Hoban's White on Black as a baby shower gift. It's a sturdy board book, and my 10 week old son, Cole, loves it! His little eyes get wide with each new page, and he smiles and coos, especially at the buttons. I'm ordering Black on White today, even though I've never seen it. I know it will be another favorite.
