Share this book with the baby in your life. Perfect for tummy time!
From the eminent photographer and acclaimed book creator Tana Hoban, this bestselling accordion-style foldout book is sturdy enough to stand by itself and features fourteen bold black-and-white high-contrast images to engage babies and very young children.
Tana Hoban’s books 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.
This sturdy accordion-style foldout book features high-contrast art from two bestselling Tana Hoban board books: Black on White and White on Black. These classic and popular books have sold more than one million copies.
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.”
Recognized as a winner in Romper's "best baby gear of 2022"! As Romper notes: "Your baby's eyes will take a little time adjusting to the real world, and the first thing they will be able to discern are high-contrast patterns. This is a great first book for baby."

It folds out so you can place it on the floor for her to look at while baby is laying down. One side features a black background with white objects and the other side has white backgrounds with black objects. The contrast keeps our baby interested for “long” periods of time.
We also make up stories and explain the objects which she loves. There are 14 images in total so lots to work with.
Fantastic purchase, could not recommend enough for little ones.
Somehow the book works and reaches the emotional receptors within your child and hopefully will forge a love and bond with books for a lifetime.
