Why did we select this book?
Your baby loves your face and the faces of her other caregivers. Watch as his/her attention snaps into focus when she sees your face and hears your voice. Faces will continue to fascinate her. When she meets other babies or children, you may find her intently watching those humans who are just her size. This book helps with the exploration of different faces and different emotions. Talk with your child about what you see on the pages and what you notice about the children. For example: This baby has fuzzy blonde hair. This baby has beautiful brown skin. Connect each baby to your own. For example: This baby had a bath. You will have a bath today with warm water and a washcloth. Will she understand everything you are saying? No, but she is trying to make connections, and that trying makes for a bright, growing baby.
