Chirpy Bird Books [Hardie Grant Egmont]
ISBN: 9781760123307
RRP: $16.95

Occupy toddlers in quiet times with magical colours and beautiful patterns in these illustrations of animals rendered in subtle monochrome – from pink flamingos to a grey wolf shaded blue in the moonlight. While the colours are subtle, the outlines and shapes are bold to catch the eye of the curious child. The name of the colour is in large type, with a name for the animal in small type below that. Leave it in their cots for them to wake up to and browse. (Also Shapes; board books.)
