- Summary: Look at the happy baby. Can you make a happy face? Find the happy baby!
This bold, beautiful board book introduces five essential expressions: happy, sad, angry, surprised, and silly. Each is introduced with a large image of a baby’s face. Readers are asked to mimic the face, then pick it out from a group of other babies. The very last spread includes all of the expressions from the previous pages, and a mirror so readers can watch themselves make any face they please.
The use of real faces as the illustrations is a brilliant idea. It helps children identify how a person's face changes through emotions.
The fun mirror at the end of the book allows babies to see how the emotional expressions they just learned from the story look on their own faces. They will also be entertained making faces of their own.
I highly recommend picking up a copy of Making Faces: A First Book of Emotions.
