A charming high-contrast introduction to sports and shapes that will captivate curious babies everywhere!.
" '3 2 1 GO!' shout the opening pages of this otherwise wordless board book, whose high-contrast images aim to grab the attention of youngest readers. On the spreads that follow, white-on-black silhouettes of athletes appear beside images of the balls their sports require; as a fun touch, a baby smiles at readers from one of the final pages, opposite a picture of a large beach ball on a bright green background. The lack of text creates an open-ended reading experience, allowing adults to ask children questions about the six sports introduced—golf, baseball, tennis, soccer, football, and basketball." —Publishers Weekly
