"Phaidon Publishing produce some of the most gorgeous and desirable board books on the planet... like this utter beauty... It's entirely suitable for a huge range of ages right down to the tiniest of tinies... It works on so many levels, this.

This is a book to keep forever. A stunning gift for a child you want to introduce to art. To be honest though I also think this is also a beautiful love token for any age. Simply lovely."—Simple Parenting

On the practical side, it's sturdy enough to withstand bash ups and chew sessions, so it'll make it to the older years. It's the right size to see the pictures and still fit easily into a kid's bookshelf. It's attractive and the image choices are fantastic and diverse. It's beautifully curated, beautifully designed, and the words fit.
Truly a 5 star art book for babies. Well done.
