What the experts are saying:
Infants are naturally attracted to human faces. When presented with the choice of looking at a bull's-eye, printed patterns, brightly colored disks, or the human face, they choose the face. Infants a few months old become distressed if a teacher's face is still and not expressive. They fuss and turn away.
- excerpt from .scholastic.com

At four to six months, a baby... is fascinated with faces of other babies and his/her own, as seen in a mirror; recognizes a person on sight and smiles selectively; shifts from his/her earlier preference for what is familiar to a preference for novelty (except as related to people).
- Penny Glass, PhD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, George Washington University Medical School, and Director of the Child Development Program, Children's National Medical Center, Washington, DC.

"...remember that babies are more interested in the human face than any other object..."
- excerpt from investinkids.ca

"Babies have to learn everything, but as Piaget was saying, they start with a few primitive reflexes that get things going," says Sirois. For example, hardwired in the brain is an instinct that draws a baby's eyes to ahuman face."
- excerpt from Times article "What Do Babies Know" January 19, 2007

Human babies start out with the ability to recognize a wide range of faces, even among races or species different from their own, according to a new study.

    Great book - even useful in the car.
