This is a picture book for toddlers. There are 22 pages in the book. Each two pages show a human baby and a baby animal with the same facial expression or gestures. I think it is a great book for toddlers because it shows different babies from different races. It gives them the idea from the very beginning of their lives so that they will grasp the concept that not all babies look the exact same way as themselves. Also it is fun to see all the baby animals with human-like expressions. So, it edu ...more

CIP/Summary: A wordless picture book that juxtaposes photographs of human infants with oddly similar photographs of animals.

I never realized how alike a sleeping baby and a sleeping frog could be until seeing the photograghs in Vicki Ceelen's Baby! Baby! Though intended for children ages 0-4, adults and kids alike will be charmed at the photographs drawing wordless comparisons between infants and animals.

Each page spread in this book features a photo of a baby paired with a photo of an animal that somehow matches what the human baby is doing. It's pretty clever and cute, and is a great example of how responsive babies are to photographs of other babies. Seeing as "baby" is one of Lu's four vocabulary words at 11 months, this is an exciting read for her. "Kitty" is another one, and there's also a cat photo.

This is Henry's favorite board book right now. It places pictures of babies alongside pictures of baby animals where the pose or expression matches. It is quite adorable and baby and parent both will enjoy the book. It is a shame that we don't have a copy here in our library.

Amazing pictures of babies and animals where each set of pictures matches. For example, a picture of a turtle's face and a baby's face, and the expressions are exactly the same. Fun.

Read this at the Lewiston Library while looking for books for Natalie. I decided not to get this one since it didn't focus on faces as much. It reminded me more of a Hallmark gift book.

0-7 cute board book...on facing pages an animal baby and a human baby, both which mimic similar expressions, posture, etc. For example a lion yawning and a baby yawning.

Really cute wordless boardbook. On facing pages an animal and a human baby, both which mimic similar expressions, posture, etc. For example a lion yawning and a baby yawning. Great new baby gift!
This book has pictures of babies that are similar to animals with no words. This might be good for a young sibling-to-be but is not interesting for my 3 year old.

I bought this (and another by Ceelen) when my 14 month old turned 1 year. He is always pulling them off his shelf and looking at the pictures! Great images and very clever.

This is a cute book. My two year old son really likes the pictures. I have no idea why, but he thinks that the Basset Hound is a cat. Some dogs look like cats, but not a Basset Hound! Go figure!
