This is a great board book for babies because it only contains pictures of babies. Those reading this book can see the varying emotions that babies have, and can begin to recognize those expressions in people they encounter in life. The fact that it contains opposites is also helpful for baby's development.

I really liked looking at the babies in this one. I made a sad face when I saw the crying baby, and I loved the baby with the hat! (Even though the hate baby also seemed to be crying...)
My little Rabbit really liked looking at the babies in this book.
We have the French edition of this book (Beaucoup de beaux bebes) and my kids just love it, especially the last page where they get to look at themselves! I know about babies seeing things in contrast but I can't help but wish the photos were in colour...

For children, you can't go wrong with a book that has images of children. Children love all faces: human animal or plant (flowers).
A beautiful board book featuring photographs of different babies doing different things.
It is a very soothing book. It also is great with teaching children their emotions.
had to change some of the words, some of the words were offensive
Beautiful portraits of babies. What more do you need?
Les enfants adorent regarder d'autres bébés.
