Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Rendered in black-and-white images well suited to newest eyes, the sturdy pages of Look at the Animals! by Peter Linenthal teem with pandas, a zebra and a black pup playing ball (in b&w polka-dots, naturally) with a white pup ("Look! Puppies play"). Bold yellow type makes the simple text pop. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
A few years ago there was a study that showed babies were attracted to high contrast black-and- white images. Ba Ba Ha Ha and Oooh Oooh Moo were the first I remember seeing. Each picture corresponded with a sound or short phrase. In this new board book, familiar animals are presented and each page has a statement such as "Look!" or a few words in a phrase to describe what is going on—birds sing, zebras run, and cats purr. This book is targeted more to an older child than the other series, which is no longer available, but the books are quite effective. Parents and caregivers should be reminded that at an early age black-and-white images can be quite effective in conveying information. 2006, Dutton/Penguin, Ages 6 mo. to 2.

My 3 month old baby loves this! We bought it for her because of the high contrast pictures. She loves to stare at them and track them as we move the book. She recently learned how to turn the pages and gets such a kick out of it. The pictures are adorable.

We recently added Look at the Animals! to my fourteen month-old son's library and it quickly became one of his favorites. We had been reading 'Look, Look' from the time he was born and he seemed to recognize the style. This book and 'Look Look' both grab a baby's attention!
