This is brilliant. Images from several of Hoban's black and white silhouette books - primarily Black on White and White on Black, but also Who are They? - are printed onto accordian pages which can be folded out, arranged on the floor or baby's crib. There is also a velcro tab to hold the book shut. I wish this had existed when my daughter was an infant. This is a perfect baby shower gift.

This board book is less of a book and more of a panel of pictures that fold out, accordion style. One side features white pictures on black, and the other side shows black pictures on white; each page has just one icon, maybe a banana or a chair or a set of keys. This is more of art folded in book form, but hey, I'm not complaining. One of my goals is to teach my children that books are amazing and fun, and full of surprises. Introducing them to pop-up books, lift-the-flap books, books with great illustrations, and books like this one all further that goal. Also, my littlest is less than a year, and still at that age where black and white pictures are enticing. Plus, I can unfold the pictures and curve them around her, and she can roll around and look at them. As for my toddler, she likes to sit there and name all the objects. A win on both sides! There's not much to the book, but what is there, is good. A nice concept that wins my girls' approval.
