Synopses & Reviews
Tildes follows Baby Animals Spots amp; Stripes with another high contrast board book this time showing four woodland creatures awake and asleep. Wispy naturalistic images with the look of scratchboard art show a chipmunk eating an acorn as the book opens; opposite it curls up in a thatch of grass. Baby bobcats otters and skunks follow and black backgrounds for the bobcat and skunk’s “awake” scenes hint at their nocturnal habits. A full color closing spread of a human child almost seems like it belongs to another book visually speaking but it should help youngest readers draw connections between their own habits and those of the pictured animals.
