Great Book! Jun 1, 2007
My son loves this book and I enjoy reading it to him. The pictures are great and I love the little story to read along with the pictures. My son has enjoyed reading this book over and over again. The pitures are much better than some of the other baby faces books I have bought.
A Favorite May 15, 2007
This was one of my daughter's favorite books from about 18 months-2 yrs. She memorized the short sentences based on the pictures. It was too cute when she would read it to us before bedtime.
Good beginner book for babies 4 months and younger Mar 16, 2006
My 2 month old daughter liked looking at the black and white photos of the babies. Young babies top two things to look at are black and white pictures/patterns and pictures of faces. This book has put the two together. Recommended to buy for those who are pregnant or have a young child.
Our Baby Loves this Book Oct 30, 2005
I brought this book back from the library to read for our then 10 month old. After about two - three reads of the book she loved it. It is a great book to read to your baby as the words are simple, strong, and follow a lovely rhyming pattern eg "baby happy, baby sad, baby good, baby bad." The pictures are all of young babies and the book is very easy and sturdy for our baby to turn the pages herself while I read to her. At other times she reads the book herself, turning the pages and looking at the pictures. She loves the last page with the mirror, looks into it, and kisses it. Although I am getting sick of reading this book our daughter certainly isn't it and it is now 3 months on. In summary rhyming is good, pictures good, nice and simple, easy to turn pages a winner in our family.
review Aug 22, 2005
I thought my daughter would love looking at this book since she loves to look at other babies; however, the photos are very muddy. I wish they were more crisp with definite black and white colors instead of lots of grey tones. Some of the captions that go along with the photos are misleading if you are teaching your baby feelings and actions, i.e "baby bad" is smiling so that might elude your child to think it is ok to play with flour. Not the best, but she will pick it up to look at the photos.
