Seven anxious mother animals ask the title question, "Where is my baby?" The babies are revealed beneath each flap, as are their particular baby animal names (piglet, kid, chick, lamb, etc.), and each makes its signature sound (an oink, moo, meow, quack, chirp, baa, etc.). When turned, the flap changes the mother's expression from worried to delighted. Somehow, Mr. Taback ...more

I read Where is my baby, in exchange for review from Edelweiss. The book was a quick read. The book had excellent colors, design, and graphics. Great read for the children

The book has each mama (or daddy) animal, looking for their baby. The book also teaches about the names of baby animals (chick, piglet, kid, etc). The kids loved the book.
With fantastic illustrations by Simms Taback ("Who Said Moo?" is another collaboration), this book is a definite winner. The animals are bright, easy to recognize and full of personality. The flip action is rewarding and reveals little baby animals with their proper names (kid, calf, etc.) Highly recommended for ages 0+

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:] The lively colored art keeps both child and parents' attention.

We enjoy this a lot. Lu (19 months) is especially taken by the 1/2 page format, it's different enough that she's captivated by it. I thought the illustration style was a little kooky, but Lu seems just fine with it. Plot-wise, it covers the essential adult/baby animal words. I guess that's the plot. It's hard to review board books.
0* art

To be clear - Squirt doesn't care that the animals are hideous beyond recognition. This is a fun book, and he's learning that baby animals have different names than their parents, which is good (and confusing, too). My reaction is moot.
A simple book about animal mothers and their babies. A nice perk of the book I got from the library was that one of the pages was torn out, and replaced with someone's beautiful drawing to replace it. How fun! Good for a look at the library.
