I bought this book for my son when he was 12 months old and at 20 months old he still returns to it and enjoys it. In fact, he enjoys it so much that I've mended it with so much clear packaging tape that it could probably withstand a nuclear blast. I might have to order another copy. From an adult's perspective, looking at the book you might find the pictures silly, but maybe your kid will like them as mine does.

As for concerns by some as to whether the book teaches a better range of facial expressions... Well, isn't that where the parent steps-in and interacts with the child and teaches him or her about a broad range of emotions and expressions? We can't leave it all to books and television. What it does do is teach my child about books and that there are things to be enjoyed about them, as well as learned from them.

Here's a run-down of the book and its content. The overall size of the book is ideal for small hands to handle and the pictures are essentially pictures of a toddler, head and shoulders. The ethnic appearances of the children (if ethnic relevance is a concern for you) are mostly Caucasian (brown hair and blond), and if you include the photos on the covers of the book as well as inside there are a few that appear to be Asian, and a few that appear to be of African or of Indian descent. The topics covered are: happy, sad, puzzled, surprised, peek-a-boo (preceded by a picture of a baby happily semi-hiding under a basket), angry, worried, crying, laughing, hungry, kissing (shows one child kissing the cheek of another), dirty, clean, tired, and "fast asleep".

It would be nice if the book was a little more sturdy, but it's no different from any other board book in that area. Afterall, the publisher probably wants us to buy more books. Right?

This is a great simple book for babies and I know from experience that it is durable and stands the test of time. I got this book for my daughter when she was a baby, now 4 1/2 and my son who is 9 months old. This was the 1st thing I purchased when I knew I was pregnant the second time. I knew he'd enjoy it as much as my daughter did. They both love it. My 9 month old son searches this book out on is book shelf and happy screams when he finds it. Then opens the book and kisses all the babies. A must buy for any family and a great price.

My 14 month old likes this book just fine. Definitely not her favorite book. She likes to look at babies in general, so probably any of these books would have the same effect. To me, the faces the babies are making kind of don't match up well to the word or feeling underneath. The angry baby doesn't look angry to me, the puzzled baby doesn't at all look puzzled to me. Oh, and the dirty baby isn't dirty enough. You want to see a dirty baby face? I bet most parents have a better picture than that one! The book called "Baby Faces" by Playskool is better. The pictures are cuter, bigger, and there are more examples of each emotion.

This was my son's first book along with White on Black. Both were big hits with him while he was younger. He enjoyed looking at the faces and having me name the diferent expressions. He would be smiling as we were looking at the different pictures in the book and at 18 mos still enjoys looking at it. Babies are attracted to human faces and this book is perfect for that. It is pictures of little babies one is sad, surprised, happy, tired, etc. This is a perfect first book and I would reccommend it to anyone with a little baby.

DK made sure this book is full of babies of different cultures and genders...so good job there. But I thought some of the pictures were odd or didn't "fit". There is a peek a boo picture and it says, "Where is baby?" and he's right there holding a basket over his head in plain view. Then on the facing page it says, "Peek a Boo!" with the basket lifted a smidge higher... I wish the basket were covering his face in the first picture. It doesn't make sense. And then there is a picture of two babies kissing but all you can see is the back of one of the babies heads....just weird to me... I probably wouldn't have purchased this had I seen it in the store.

My daughter, now 3, has always loved this book. As a baby of 8 months, she would roll over to it and look at the pictures by herself. It's still interesting to her. I give this to everyone I know who's having a baby. My daughter really destroyed this book, a mark of her great affection. Buy two copies, one for them to chew up as a baby, the other for when they're a little older.

For some reason babies seem to be FASCINATED with pictures of other babies. This book provides a lot of cute baby faces with various expressions for your little one to look at. My 14 month old loves it - particularly the "baby peeks" page, which always starts up a peek-a-boo game. The text is not terribly exciting - just labels for the babies and their expressions. The photography is quite good, though, and that makes this an attractive book.

The baby faces in this book are so adorable and my daughter who loves to look at other babies stares and stares at all the babies and looks at me to imitate the faces for her.

The soft spongey sort of cover is nicer than traditional board book covers which are hard and well, cardboard.

This book kept my daughter entertained even while she was getting her shots! Needless to say she chose the crying face for the ouch moment!
