Recommends it for: my kid's mouth
Shelves: baby-books
One of my kid's favorite books (to put in his mouth). It shows pictures of babies in various moods. This claims to help a kid's social development, which sounds like it might be taking itself a little seriously.

The thing that keeps it from being a five-star book for me is this kid right here:

This kid fuckin' sucks at peek-a-boo. He's not hidden at all! Fuck this kid.

BTW you know what this makes me think about is it must be rough to be a racist parent. This book has a wonderful assortment of babi

Maddie stared intently at the other babies and Kait liked talking about their emotions.

One of my daughter's favorites from 6 mos to a year. She loves to flip through and look at the babies with faces describing different feelings (sad, surprised, angry, sleepy, dirty, hungry, etc). We also read this book to learn about labeling emotions. I sometimes open it and point to the face that describes her current state and ask her if she feels like that baby, and tell her what word is used to describe him or her. I think it may promote empathy, but at the very least I'm hoping it will hel ...more

This is a great book to use in educating your baby in emotions. This book shows several emotions made by other babies. It is well illustrated, and very colorful.

Minus half a star for the "where's baby / peekaboo" combo. The baby is right there. He's not even a little bit hidden in that basket. Lazy.

Dec 2009 - I read that looking at pictures of faces is highly recommended for babies in their first month, so when we went to the mall today, I went to the book store looking especially for a book like this one. Luckily, Mike found the only copy of the only title they had like it. Natalie definitely was interested in looking at the pictures. I just wish the pages were a little bigger.

June 2011 - I later gave away our copy of this book. We found several other baby faces books we like better. One

Brief summary - photographs, these books capture the expressions and moods of babies throughout their busy days
Annotation - Children like to see the faces of other babies and the various faces will keep your babies interest.
Age appropriateness 0-1 year
Connection to six early literacy skills
Print Motivation - Babies will like to read and reread this "story"
Opinion - I think it is a fine book, but there is a strong need for babies to see other baby faces. There is some similar books, they are all

What can I say? Babies love other babies!! I think this is a must have book for new parents. I started reading this to our daughter at 6 months (yes, that's young but you should be reading to your children early, even from birth). She loved it and soon learned to interact with the babies and show the emotions.

This is the very best book for babies. It's a board book that goes through different photographs of infants. It labels each photo with a description of what the baby is feeling. This book is fantastic for print awareness and print motivation for young babies. They absolutely LOVE to look at other babies.
I like the idea of a baby faces book showing different emotions, but I wasn't all that taken with the expressions in this book. (And as another reviewer note, what kind of barely-trying peek-a-boo game was that in the middle?) I did appreciate that the faces were not only white babies.

Another "baby faces" book with babies showing a range of emotions. It was okay, Gavin looked at the pictures, but neither one of us found it as interesting or engaging as other books we've read with faces.

There are faces of babies. Eight of them. Nine if you count "kissing" as two. SPOILER ALERT: they fall asleep at the end.

One of my daughter's favorites. She loves looking at the babies. I love interacting with her and saying what each baby is doing.

Baby faces is a good board book for toddlers. Just one word aligned with a picture on each page. A good tool for peaking toddlers interest in books and print awareness.
Shameful confession: I spend this book thinking about how my baby is cuter than all the kids in the pictures.

This was the first book my baby loved, from 4 months on. It's smaller than most board books with a cover that is NOT flush with the pages, so it was easy for her to open, and she loves the faces.

This is the very best book you can get for a baby. I've already had to buy 2 since the first one was chewed on.

Grandma Nancy got me this one. It has pictures of babies making different expressions. Mommy shows it to me when I am calm and quiet and sometimes I smile at the babies.
