Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSAEye-captivating and expressive board books for infants. One or two words are paired with full-color close-up photos of a multiethnic cast of babies. In Baby Faces, emotions are directly linked to facial expressions with such simple terms as "yucky," "yum-yum," and "uh-oh." What's on My Head? presents a variety of colorful itemsAsuch as a red fire hat, a stuffed toy puppy, and a green velvet froggyAplopped squarely on top of each child's head. These first books are sure to entice future readers with interesting sights and sounds.ASelene S. Vasquez, Orange Brook Elementary School, Hollywood, FL

Format: Board book
I am so glad this we were able to check this book out at the library (along with quite a few other board books by the author) before purchasing any online. My son (16 mos.), like other infants and especially only children who do not have the opportunity to engage in activities with other children often, really enjoys seeing pictures of other babies. However, this book bored him after reading it the first time. He never picked it up again. This book contains some photos of babies haphazardly thrown together without any sort of attempt to teach anything - feelings, body parts, etc. etc., and was put out on the market just as fast as they could. In fact, the whole series of these books by Margaret Miller are not designed with babies in mind at all...she is a photographer/illustrator and not a childcare development researcher, teacher, etc. For example, go out in your yard, take some pictures of your kids and neighbor's kids playing, add an ambiguous, almost meaningless sentence on each page like "We are friends," "Let's have fun" and you have one of Miller's books. I absolutely would not spend any more than .50 cents for Baby Faces at a yard sale-if you happen to run across a copy. The only design advantage of this particular book is that very young infants might enjoy the simple design of each page..but even they need some variation. You could simply show them pictures of babies in Parenting Magazine and it would do the trick. Instead of this book, I recommend "My Body Board Book" (one in a series) and a real hit with infants and toddlers.

Ugh. You'd do best to pick a different book. Not only is this one a measly 6 pages long, but the expressions don't match the words they've chosen--so you're effectively teaching your child incorrect words for a particular expression (nothing like making them unlearn things later!), and, while the editor clearly was intending to include a "diverse" set of babies, they ended up putting negative words next to both of the two black babies they included! Nothing like showing your little kiddo a darling black girl and saying "yucky!" as you read the text. Puhlease.

This book, filled with baby faces with wonderful expressions, has kept my children's attention for much longer than any other 6 page board book I own. They read and re-read the book. That should say it all.

I don't know what it is about this book, but both my boys, ages 1 and 4, love it so much! I guess it's probably the big, clear and so expressive faces of the babies. My 4 year old especially loves it that one baby is crying---I think because that's a reality of babies that so many baby books seem to ignore, and it probably helps him accept that his brother does cry sometimes! I'd really recommend this one!

This book, in short simple ways, shows a diverse array of children and common emotions. An excellent beginner book, the close-up shots attract the attention of young infants and the simple words (especially when said in an entertaining voice) make for a fun read.

Format: Board book
My daughter LOVES this book for short car rides- half an hour or so. She doesn't go to daycare AND she's an only child so she doesn't see other babies except from the seat of a shopping cart when we run errands or in the park. So she LOVES this book and laughs and coos at the babies on the pages. My only complaint, and this is really small since she doesn't actually READ the book, she just looks at the babies faces, but some of the baby faces don't look like the describing words on the facing page. If you want this book to teach your baby describing words, this isn't the best one, but just for the pictures, it's very cute and entertaining for baby.

***EDIT Note: My daughter is 2.5 now and she still LOVES this book!!! Will be getting one for my friends why they start having babies too!!!

This is an adorable book filled with faces of babies showing various expressions. The size of the board book is perfect for little hands and the faces are true-to-life in size. My 11 month old is enthralled with book and giggles while she looks at it. Even my 3 year old likes to look at it with her!

The expressions on the children's faces in this book really lean toward sad and worried. I'm not sure why there aren't more smiling babies here. The photos are good, but I'd rather my infants saw fewer "boo hoo" and "uh oh" expressions and more giggly and happy ones.
