Board book: Making Faces

Making Faces: A First Book of Emotions. 2017. Abrams. 14 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Look at the happy baby. Can you make a happy face? Find the happy baby! Look at the sad baby. Can you make a sad face? Find the sad baby!

Premise/plot: Making Faces is a concept board book. The concept being taught is emotions. The emotions explored are 'happy,' 'sad,' 'angry,' 'surprised,' and 'silly.' The book follows a definite pattern. The last spread reviews the five emotions and features a mirror so your little one can make faces of his/her own!

My thoughts: Babies like books with mirrors. The book features photographs--well of faces--of babies. The text is super-simple and follows a pattern. One could definitely enjoy reading this one with a little one in the lap!!! Reading aloud is SO essential to a baby's development.
