Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This small-sized assemblage of baby photographs folds out, accordion-style, showing happy, beaming faces and frowning, crying faces. Wattenberg has captured 14 ingratiating infants in a delightful ``gallery.'' The book's sturdy construction and the photos' multicolored, zany backgrounds add to the book's charm. This endearing collection will be a terrific treat for babies, while their proud parents will no doubt recognize many familiar expressions. Ages 4 months-4 years. (Oct.)

WOMAN, October 1989
Jane Wattenberg's Mrs. Mustard's Baby Faces, has the makings of a children's classic. An accordion strip of seven snaps of babies laughing and seven snaps of those same babies crying, it's delightful.

This endearing collection will be a terrific treat for babies. Publisher's Weekly

I got this book 13 years ago as a present for my son. There is something about the faces in this particular book with the great background graphics that kids just LOVE. I have four kids now....each one got their own book, and I always order these to give out with gifts at baby showers. You don't understand how much they'll love it until they start looking at it over and over. I always order a couple at a time so I have them on hand to give in addition to the registry gift. Highly recommended.
