Presents a series of simple illustrations in black and white of the faces of baby animals, including both domestic animals and such wild creatures as a zebra and a panda.
This is a great book for newborns with its extremely high contrast black and white illustrations, although older audiences may be pretty bored with this quick, wordless board book.
Phyllis Limbacher Tildes is the author and illustrator of many books for children, including Baby Animals Day & Night, Baby Animals Spots & Stripes, and Baby Animals Black and White. She lives in Savannah, Georgia. Phyllis has worked as a designer for Hallmark and was the assistant art director for Hopkins Art Center at Dartmouth College after her graduation from RISD. She was a freelance graphic designer for over twenty-five years, doing everything from logos to opera and ballet promotion pieces.
She never lost sight of her original dream of becoming an author/illustrator, however, and in 1995 her first children’s book, Counting on Calico, was published. Since then she has published several other stories ranging from pets and wildlife to ethnic tales.
