Bloomsbury, 2017. ISBN 9781408873786
(Ages: 0-2) Board book. High-contrast pictures. Animals. The other book in this new series for the very youngest of children is Everyday. Both feature bold black and white pictures with pops of coloured foil on each page. The shine of the foil will draw baby's eye as well as providing a tactile element. Each double page has one word (bird, ladybird, bee, snail, butterfly) and features an illustration of outdoor things (leaves, flowers, etc.) The visually beautiful and high-contrast illustrations will engage the developing eyes of very young infants. This is a perfect first baby book but older babies and toddlers will also enjoy it, especially due to the shiny foil inlays. Older infants will also be able to point to and name the objects and creatures on the pages.
