Read, Read, Read, said the Baby: Baby Animals Day & Night by Phyllis Limbacher Tildes

This simple board book is both sweet and ideal for introducing books to babies.

Five simple spreads show fluffy animals awake and asleep; a chipmunk, a bobcat, an otter, a skunk, and a cute, curly-haired baby. The final spread, showing the baby, is in color. The others are in delicate black and white ink color. There is a subtle coding of the backgrounds as well. Diurnal animals, like the chipmunk, have a white background (day) when they're awake and a black background (night) when they're asleep. Nocturnal animals, like the bobcat, have a black background when awake and a white background when asleep.

The small, simple cardboard board book is about 5 by 5 inches square and the pages are thin but sturdy.

Verdict: This simple little book is a perfect addition to your board book section. Recommended.
