Babies Love Outer Space. ­

Philomel. Nov. 2022. 18p. Board $6.99. ISBN 9780593403518.
Baby–The pages of this meditative concept book feature space-themed tableaux in stark black and white, the monochrome palette specifically selected to engage the attention of infants as their eyesight develops in the weeks after birth. König renders her cosmic imagery in a variety of artistic styles, from thick-lined cartoons to realistic stippled drawings. While babies will be engaged by the distinctive shapes and contrasting tones, adults may use the recognizable content (stars, planets, constellations, spacecraft, galaxies, black holes) as a jumping-off point for engaging songs and gentle games.
VERDICT An inspiring book for space enthusiasts of all ages.
