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...

Happy reading!
