Item description for Where is My Baby? by Simms Taback...
Overview Mother hen, mother pig, and five other animal mothers find their babies and reveal their names such as chick, piglet, kitten, on the flaps throughout this book.
Publishers Description This deceptively simple, excitingly illustrated board book is based on a telling theme - that baby animals are known by names quite different from their parents (cow and calf, goat and kid). The text is perfectly targeted to the youngest children, who will thoroughly enjoy lifting the flaps and matching the baby animals to their mothers. The sumptuously colorful illustrations are sure to catch the rapt attention of the smallest child.

Reviews - What do customers think about Where is My Baby??
A hit with the 2 year old Dec 30, 2003
She loves this lift the flap book that teaches the terms for baby animals and animal sounds. I like it because the flaps are all shaped differently and are at odd angles. The illustration is cute too, and the last page has all the animals lined up so you can count them, and review names and sounds.
Favorite book Nov 13, 2002
My son is now 1 year but this has been a FAVORITE book since he was 3 months and we have alot of books. The pages are thick cardboard, the flaps are easy for him to turn, the pictures are bright and adorable!
Where is my baby? Dec 15, 1999
This book makes wonderful use of flaps. The momma animal says, "Where is my baby?" with a sad look on her face on the left side of the page. A partial flap on the right side covers the baby animal, but not the rest of the picture, making the flap easy to grab and turn. The words under the flap says, "Here is my _____." [it fills in the blank with the appropriate name of the baby animal] It has been one of my son's favorite books since he was 12 months old! The pages are made of sturdy material helping it hold up to many "self" readings by my son! The lively colored art keeps both child and parents' attention. A must buy! I am giving it to every child on our Holiday list this year.
