What Does Baby Say?
What Does Baby Say? A Lift the Flap Book by Karen Katz. 2004. Simon & Schuster. (Little Simon). 16 pages.
This may just be my favorite Karen Katz that I've read. It's simple. It's colorful. It's fun.
What does the happy baby say?
What does the sad baby say?
What does the hungry baby say?
Goo-goo, boo-hoo, and ba-ba! And that's just the start!
I like this question and answer format. I like the fact that it's a book for babies about babies. These are emotions that babies can relate to. I also appreciate that this one (like so many of her other books) is multicultural. There are babies of all skin tones featured throughout in the illustrations.
