is a highcontrast black-and-white board book featuring a flash of shimmering color on every page. The text is minimal ("Hello, bee!" "Hello, snail!"...
) but the images are engaging for fresh eyes eagerly taking in the world, and the sound effects are adorable ("zuzz, zuzz"
says the dragonfly, "scuttle, scuttle"
goes the beetle). It's all big fun for ages 6 months and up. (CH)
