Little Black Book by Renee Khatami
This is a delightful little board book for young ones. You can touch and feel, scratch and sniff, lift the flap and more.
Random House Children's Books sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you). It's currently available at your local bookstore, so go check it out. It's a lovely book.
I have to admit that black has always been one of my favorite colors. I was enamored with it enough as a youngster that I got in trouble. The nuns called my Mom and told her they felt I need psychological help. Mom asked why. It was because I colored my Santa Claus black. Mom said I was fine, I just liked black. So you can see that this book would get a special spot in my heart.
I especially liked the whiskers on the cat mask that you can feel. The soft textures are a pleasure to one's finger. And you'll get a surprise when you lift the flap.
The text is minimal but the photos are wonderful and I bet your child will return to it again and again. After, petting the bunny is fun...
