I chose Baby Faces for one of the baby and toddler books. This book shows up close pictures of baby faces and different emotions. This story would be an excellent book for a baby or toddler to look at because they love looking at other baby's faces and they also enjoy trying to imitate different expressions. The book also shows diversity with the different babies pictured. This would be a great book for a toddler to look at by themselves or with an adult.

The following review is by Eloise:
"This book is an emotional roller coaster. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll wrinkle your nose in disgust. A must read for the whole family! Again and again and again and again!"

This book failed to keep my attention and I had to move on. Some of the babies shown are very unpalatable. The child I was watching was unamused.

This book has quickly become my very favorite (excluding that foundational work, Alfred Schütz's Phenomenology of the Social World, but that goes without saying). Admittedly the plot is rather slight, but this ambitious work truly explores the entire gamut of human emotion, from "yucky" to "yippee!".

An added advantage is that the pages are thick, and thus easier to turn than is frequently the case. Also, it is possible to skip numerous pages, and even hold the book upside-down, without noticeab

Simple board books like this one are perfectly suited for babies, who at a very young age can begin to identify the faces and relate to them, determining if they are oriented correctly. The problem with listing any one of these titles is they wear out so quickly and are frequently replaced with other similar titles.

It's a well known fact that babies like looking at other babies. Making this book was a complete no brainer for the publisher, i"m sure. Miles literally kisses each baby face and laughs and smiles at all of them--even the boo hoo baby!

I got this book from the library, and read it with my 4 month old son. He looked for a few moments at each page, however he wasn't as interested in it as I thought he would be. It may be a series that I try again in a few months when he is more interactive with making faces.

Admittedly, this book does get boring to read. It only has 5 or 6 words. But watching your baby's face as they read it, and watching them try to kiss and talk to the baby faces is definitely worth it. Besides, you can spice it up and add your own words.

We both like the faces, but I don't like the words. I tell Melanie other words or no words, or we just talk about what the babies might be feeling. I ask Melanie if she can make the faces and she likes to copy them.

Poor quality photography of a baby's head in exactly the same proportion on every page. Poor printing quality as all the photos were dark. One large baby head per page and one [negative] word per page. Didn't even show it to my 8 month old son.

This book is a great first introduction to feeling sand facial expressions of infants. Allowing infants to see books with realistic pictures is a good way to let babies see how other infants react and feel.
Not the best baby faces book, adult readers may use a different vocabulary than that used in the book. However, any infant facial photography is great for sharing with young children.

Cute, it was fun seeing what the kids thought the "face" was!

My daughter has loved this book since she was very small. The close up of other babies faces intrigues her.

My 10 month old son loves this book. Each page shows a different baby and the different reactions they might have to food or life. He loves watching me make the faces as well!

Six big baby faces including "yucky," "stinky," "uh-oh," tongue sticking out, wailing, and of course happy. Simple, yet great for babies.

Very short, but babes really liked looking at it and poking at the baby eyes.
My son loved this book! The only thing was that on a day when he was cranky, the sad baby photo made him cry. :( Poor little guy!

All faces made my baby scowl. He did not appreciate this book. Too many negative emotions and not enough positive.
Feb 04, 2012 Carol rated it liked it
Excellent book of baby faces. The words used to describe the faces are potentially confusing, as in up for debate. The faces succeed on their own.

Babies like looking at other baby faces. This was Andy's favorite of her series. Good for beginning discussion of emotions.
