A book of different baby faces showing various emotions with simple text describing the shown emotion.


This six inch board book shows the faces of babies of different ethnicities expressing various emotions. Each page is a close up of a baby face with a black background and colored border. The combination of baby faces and high contrast color would grab the interest of a baby. The simple text illustrating the emotion of the pictured baby invites the parent to discuss emotions with t

She loved the baby faces. It was fun practicing them together.
I don't understand why it is called "Peek-a-Boo" since only one baby partially covered his face. It would have been better to have one baby per page spread so the parent can cover the faces for the game.
Not bad for a free book from the pediatrician, though.
She does enjoy playing with it, and that's what's most important.

This was okay as a generic "baby faces" book, but we already have others of those that we like better. Although I guess it's good for teaching really basic verbs (laughing, crying, thinking...)

I just didn't get why they billed it as a peek-a-boo book. Only one of the pictures actually shows a baby covering his face. There isn't much peek-a-boo involved unless I cover the pictures with my hand and yell "peek-a-boo!" when I uncover them.

This board book is great for little ones. Each page is a close up of a toddlers face showing a specific emotion, which is labeled by a single word at the bottom of each page. This is a great book to encourage interaction between caregiver and child. They can practice making the facial expressions together as they read the book.

My 4-month-old son LOVES this book. I show him the pictures of the babies' faces and he grins and laughs. He grins at all of the pictures, even the ones of the crying babies (so he's not very empathetic yet, clearly :-)). I'll have to find him more baby face books, because clearly this genre is a hit right now.

Generally, I like the photographs in this series, and this one did have some good expressions. But, with a title like Peekaboo, I expect to see more kids actually playing peekaboo.

This was one of the only books that could keep Liam's attention when he was a baby.

Josh laughs & smiles on every page. I cover his eyes before I turn each page and we play peek a boo with each baby :)

Baby's favorite game gets a twist in this one. Readers start with "peek-a-boo" but get a chance to see emotions in beautiful full-color photographs of baby faces.

teaches babies what their faces look like with different emotions. I would like to try to find a baby book with more emotions in it. (ie: angry, surprised, embarrassed)
