One of Jack’s first books he read was the board book, “White on Black,” by. It was a baby shower gift from one of my friends, who happened also to be a school librarian. I can remember thinking to myself that this book seemed pretty basic, white silhouettes on a black background. He was only a few days old and it was story time with grandma. The moment Jack’s eyes saw the cover of the book, he began focusing his attention on the shapes. As his grandma turned the pages, Jack carefully noticed his shape. Being a new mom, my research led me to the discovery that babies see black and white until about five months. Red is the first color that babies begin to see at this time.
