Simple graphics in black, white, green, yellow and gold foil introduce babies to a variety of animals and objects.

Each page features one image with a caption in a bold, black type. Most of the objects facing each other across the spread are natural pairs (sun/hat and mouse/cheese), but a couple feel arbitrarily joined (balloon/bee and chick/tractor). The representations are clear and understandable for little ones learning to label the world. Squiggly lines and floating graphics add interest to the spreads, and subtle embossing adds a textural element as well. Baby Shine, another in the series, uses the same format to present additional paired images (socks/shoes and leaf/caterpillar), with embellishments in green foil this time. The width of the pages of both titles slowly increases as the pages are turned. This won’t assist little hands with page-turns as was probably the intention, but it does offer some tactile appeal.

A genial and gentle offering for the youngest readers. (Board book. 0-1)
