Good to see you, pumpkin. Boooo, little ghost. Hoot, hoot, eerie owl.

Making connections between images on a page and the real world is an important building block for your baby's communication skills—and this charming introduction to a lineup of not-scary Halloween characters, paired with friendly text and bold, basic patterns, provides an important high-contrast experience for young developing eyes. 

Using simple greetings like "What's happening, scary bat?" and, "Looking spooky, Mr. Zombie" alongside lovely black-and-white art by Jannie Ho, Booook! A Spooky High-Contrast Book is a perfect book for babies just beginning to learn about their world.

Why Black & White?

  • Exposing babies to contrasting images has a positive impact on the development of visual-spatial skills and recognizing new objects.
  • When babies are first born, they can't distinguish between colors the same way that older babies can. But studies show that babies can see high-contrast black-and-white shapes and patterns from the very first days of life. 
  • Also available: Hello, Baby Animals; Hello, My World; Hello, Ocean Friends; and Hello, Garden Bugs.
