Hey, baby! Look at these babies dressed up for Halloween!
Children's LiteratureThe newest offering in the "Look Baby! Books" series shows 7 (including the cover) costumed faces of young children. The captions explain what each costume is: "puppy dog," "firefighter," "baby bird," "cowboy," "princess," and "ragdoll." Only the hat or headgear, not the whole costume, is visible. There are several instances where showing more of the costume would have clarified the concept for a young child. Having said that, the multicultural adorable smiling faces are perfect for babies. They are clear, up-close portraits. While the concept of Halloween is beyond their ken, little ones will enjoy pointing out and identifying the parts of the face: eyes, nose, mouth, teeth, ears, etc. With its sturdy board book format, this will be a hit with the lapsitting set who will enjoy looking at the faces all year long. 2001, Little Simon/Simon & Schuster, $5.99. Ages 6 mo. to 2. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo
