Here's an unusual board book series - Checkers and Dot by J. Torres and J. Lum, with vivid illustrations ('high-contrast patterned art for developing eyes') all in black and white.

This one opens, 'Checkers and Dot are down on the farm. / Let's take a look inside the barn ...' There, small readers (along with Checkers and Dot, puppy Spot and kitten Stripesy) meet a cow, a horse, chickens, and a grumpy duck.

It's a simple but appealing concept, and the words that accompany the bold images have a good read aloud rhythm.
