Hello Baby: Animals

Roger Priddy, illus. by Holly Jackman. Macmillan/Priddy, $4.99 (16p) ISBN 978-0-312-51597-3

Part of a board-book series built around high-contrast images, this cleanly designed offering presents 16 animals, all shown in friendly cartoons with the creatures’ names appearing underneath. The spreads are divided by black and white backgrounds: an orange fish appears against black while, at right, a pink pig stares at readers from against a white back-drop. A focused introduction to animals. Simultaneously available: Faces, On the Go, and Words. All ages. (May)
