"My baby couldn't put it down! Literally! I've bought a lot of picture books for my 5-month-old, such as "White on Black" and "Black on White." He likes them all, but his favorite was always "Look! Look!" by Peter Linenthal. Whenever I would get that book out, my boy would kick frantically with anticipation and stare raptly at each picture. Of course, when I found out there was a new Linenthal book, I had to get it. As soon as he first saw the cover of the book, my normally self-contained baby became nearly hysterical with excitement. I could barely read it because he was grabbing at the pages, kicking, and squealing. I hastily concluded my storytime when my son forcefully wrenched the book away from me and jammed the spine into his mouth for a more all-encompassing literary experience.
Linenthal's images are high-contrast black and white, with bold graphic lines, many circles and spirals, and frequent mirror images. My baby finds his art eye-poppingly enthralling and worth returning to again and again. Or, as my son puts it, "aaaaiiiiEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!" (Translation: "5 stars! A treat for the eye *and* the palate!")"
"i borrowed this book from the library and my 8 month old loved it. i felt we had to buy it. i do different animal sounds for each picture and he is now anticipating the action. he is now 10 months old and this is his favorite book. i just have to hold it up and he comes right over to look."
