Overview

A baby's face is a study in motion: one minute sad, one minute happy; sometimes afraid, but ever-curious. Author/illustrator Phyllis Limbacher Tildes captures five pairs of contrasting emotions in this charming and beautifully illustrated board book. The text gives way to the adorable, innocent expressions of four growing babies and provides a wonderfully simple introduction to the concept of cause and effect.

Babies and toddlers are fascinated by faces – especially those of other babies – and will be captivated by BABY FACE. Each page is alive with colors and patterns that stimulate a baby's vision. The perfect companion to Phyllis's previous baby book, BABY ANIMALS BLACK & WHITE.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A multicultural assembly of cute babies look out from these sturdy board book pages. Each spread presents a different pair of emotions¾happy/sad, curious/surprised, scared/brave, excited/calm¾and at the end, all four little ones are ready for a nap because they are sleepy. The illustrations are bright and bold, and parents and other caregivers will have an opportunity to identify body parts, colors, animals and objects. 2001, Charlesbridge, $5.95. Ages 3 mo. to 3. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-This board book misses the mark. It features bright, cartoonlike color portraits of four toddlers. The pictures-essentially two views of each child per spread-are labeled with single-word captions for the contrasting emotions depicted. The last spread shows the four children together. They are "sleepy." The faces of the three different little ones deemed "surprised," "happy," and "excited" all wear the same expression. The pictures for "scared" and "brave" show a little boy with a caterpillar-who is afraid of a caterpillar? And is it brave to hold one on your hand? The idea behind this book is beyond a baby's understanding. There are better titles on this subject, such as Baby Faces (DK, 1998).-JoAnn Jonas, Chula Vista Public Library, San Diego, CA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
