Reviews - What do customers think about Baby Faces (Miller, Margaret, Look Baby! Books.)?
Cute & funny! Feb 6, 2008
This is my 9-month-old daughter's favorite book! I'm not sure if it's the expressions on the baby's faces, or the way I vocalize the captions, but she laughs each time I read it. It's a short book, but that's great at this age. We also have the DK publishing "Baby Faces" book and she is much less interested in that one. I disagree with previous reviewers who say that the pictures do not match the words-- they seem to be pretty close to me. Also, the complaint that the photos of Black babies are paired with negative words seems silly-- besides "Yucky!" the other photo is "Uh-oh!" which is an expression most kids find funny, I think. The other "negative" words ( "Stinky" and "Boo Hoo") are paired with 2 photos of White kids. (And FYI, the lone Asian baby is paired with "Yum Yum.")
Are all babies unhappy babies? Sep 23, 2007
I bought this book because it was recommended as a good book for babies to look at other baby's faces. I was not happy with it because it most of the descriptions of the various baby faces are negative, like "stinky" "uh-oh" etc. I had a hard time explaining to my 3 y.o. daughter why each of the babies was unhappy and my 3 month old son didn't give a darn about the faces. I'll be passing this book along quickly.
Bought this book for grandson and he loves it! Jun 14, 2007
Bought this book for grandson and he loves it! Now passed on to his brother.
Great Photos But... May 13, 2007
Fantastic photos that your baby will probably really enjoy! The only problem is that the book is ridiculously short. The "Super Chubby" series by Neil Ricklen is worth checking out. His books have three times as many photos and are usually a buck less. Granted, the photos are larger and better in Margaret Miller's books, but you might feel a bit resentful about how few pages you get for the price.
One of my baby's first and favorite books, but there are better ones May 7, 2007
I don't know about other babies, but my 1-year-old has loved to look at photos of other babies since she was old enough to look at a book. This is a good one and she enjoys it, but it only holds her attention for so long because there is nothing else to look at but close-ups of babies' faces. Also, there is just one word on each page, which may be OK for her, but is a little boring for me (after all, I read it to her several times a day!).
Other books (like the Happy Baby books by Roger Priddy) have other elements along with the babies (clothes, toys, etc) and those are more interesting to her. Still, this is a good one for babies who like to look at other babies.
