I bought this book and Faces(Baby's First Book) when my little girl was about 9 weeks old. The book contains pictures of a bottle, horse, sail boat, duck, buttons, beads, bird and a flower. Of the two books this one was only looked at occassionally by my little girl (even though it was in her cot all the time) and as the book is shiny and a hard back, now that she is grabbing for things at 18 weeks old this book is not of much interest to her. If you are looking for a book for a very young baby (up to about 17 weeks) then get a black and white book, but I would recommend the Faces book as this was the one that she liked the best and as it is cloth she is using it to develop her hand coordination skills.

We've had this book since by daughter was born 9 weeks ago. She's been drawn to the images ever since and we've noticed she especially loves the pages with buttons and the flower.
I think that by alternating on which side of her baby gym we placed the book, open for her to gaze at, she's been encouraged to look at objects on both sides (as many babies tend to favour one side of their head more than the other).
We bought this alongside the 'faces' first book. Both have been excellent so far. I'm hoping she'll use the books to turn the pages once she gets a little more control over her hands!
Defintely a worthwhile first book,

Same as the black on white I think this item is brilliant for babies as they only see sharp contrasts. I remember reading a review of someone saying that his baby was breastfed and had no concept of what a bottle was and as there is a picture of a bottle it was useless. I would like to say that babies have no concept of what a bottle is anyway and they have no concept of what a teddy is or a button so this comment was totally useless to me. The images a simple and easy to see, my baby who is breastfed too loves it nonetheless.

This book is by no means a disaster, but our baby found it much less interesting than other options, even when very young. The dots and spots books are much more engaging in our experience.

I had read that babies first react to black and white images, so I bought this book. Baby loved it right from birth. He would look at the images for ages, and developed his favourite page. I'm convinced it has helped his development, he's a bright boy and keen to learn.
