Our Favorite High Contrast (Black and White) Baby Books

We love black and white books for newborns! Research shows that babies’ vision and brain growth are both most stimulated by black and white or light and dark contrasting colors for the first six months. Here are our top picks.


Hello, Bugs!, by Smriti Prasadam and illustrated by Emily Bolam.
We love all of Smriti Prasadam’s beautiful black and white books. This one introduces ten vibrant, colorful and sparkly bugs, that are especially eye-catching on black and white backgrounds.
Spots and Dots (Art Baby), by Chez Picthall.
The high contrast colors and shapes (spots and dots among others) are sure to captivate your little one.
