Overview

Nothing is more enticing to a baby than another baby. This vibrantly colored folding board book contains twelve pictures of darling baby faces against a variety of backgrounds—on one side there are six happy, smiling babies and on the other, six cranky, crying babies.

The book folds open accordion style, so it can stand up in a crib or on the floor to amuse even the youngest infant. The sturdy board construction is designed to withstand baby's curiosity and provide some lasting power to baby's first book. Parents, teachers, and caregivers can use Mrs. Mustard's Baby Faces to entertain infants and to help toddlers examine the complicated range of emotions falling under the general labels "happy" and "sad."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, October 1989
This small-sized assemblage of baby photographs folds out, accordionstyle, 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.

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.
