Latest update on orders
We are extremely sad to say we no longer feel it is possible to take online orders at this time following the latest government advice about COVID-19.
The product listings are open for browsing (you'll notice they are now marked 'sold out' this is only temporary), you can buy gift cards, download lots of free content and support us by buying on Amazon whilst they are operating.
Buy me a Ko-fi?
If you really love our free content, and you can afford a little spare change, I need your support now more than ever. I've joined Ko-fi a place where you can buy me a virtual coffee to help me pay my bills whilst I cannot trade. Anything more than that will be donated to charity.
I sadly can't claim any help from the government as my business falls through the cracks of their support schemes. So with extreme difficulty, I am asking you, my kind and wonderful customers and friends to help keep me afloat during this turbulent time.
Read more about my story on my Ko-fi page.
FREE kids activities
Need some activities to keep the little ones amused? Our Wild Play area of the site has lots of free downloads and printables for you to have some animal fun at home or out and about.
I am uploading at least two new things to do each week so check back often and make sure you follow us on social media.
Why Black And White?
When your baby is born their retinas are not fully developed and your baby sees the world very differently to an adult. Although they have been able to distinguish between light and dark in the womb, your new born can still only detect very large contrasts between light and dark after birth such as black and white. This means that pretty much all of the wider world around them is blurry and they cannot distinguish between shapes or colours.
What our customers say
What wonderful books. My 1 year old daughter was fascinated by the capturing illustrations. A great present... nice to have something different!
My set of books and fun fact cards arrived yesterday and I love them! Well made, visually appealing and informative too. Thank you very much The Little Black and White Book Project! :)
Love these! Pretty please bring out more flash cards. Our little girl absolutely loves playing with them.
My baby girl loves these book. Even when she’s having one of those days... Thank you for these and the smiles and calmness they bring!
Best gift for newborns and toddlers! Have given them to three different families as gifts and their kids loved learning about the animals from around the world. Can't recommend them enough! :)
Wow both my 2 year old and 6 year old love these books and flashcards! They've so enjoyed learning about the animals from around the world and come back to them again and again. They also make great presents for new babies thank you!
These books are absolutely beautiful and make a wonderful, unique gift. The fact that 25% of profits go to wildlife charities makes them a great feel-good purchase. I can't wait to explore the flash cards next!
As advocates of conscious consumerism, we believe it is possible for both people and planet to profit and we are keen that this project is able to give a little something back to the animals that inspired us. That's why 25% of the profits from every product, will be donated to wildlife and conservation charities worldwide.
