Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Sesame School Random House launches the Sesame Beginnings series, a line of board books designed to teach pre-literacy skills to babies and toddlers. The books are leveled 1-5 to correspond to different developmental stages, and the first book, Baby Faces by Wendy Cheyette Lewison, illus. by Christopher Moroney, connects the facial expressions of familiar Sesame Street characters with phrases such as "Boo-boo" and "Bye-bye." Peekaboo! I See You!, by the same team, engages youngsters with the familiar game; flaps lift to reveal the names of each character ("Someone is hiding. Do you know who? Peekaboo, Big Bird! I see you!). Cookie See! Cookie Do! by Anna Jane Hays, illus. by Barry Goldberg, uses gatefold spreads to highlight the growing physical competency of two-year-olds ("Elmo says, Reach up high. Stand up tall"). Toddlers learn simple games and songs in Pat-a-Cake and Other First Baby Games and Sing a Song of Sixpence and Other First Songs for Baby, both illus. by Tom Brannon.

My son received this book as a gift. He loves it. He has signs and now words for each page and when he was younger, he was so happy to see the "baby" at the end. I will definitely keep this one for our next little one. Highly recommended!!

My 7 month old son loves this book! When we sit down to read it, he laughs before the book is even opened. I highly recommend this one!!
