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.

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.
