Babies love to look at other babies and this book is brimming over with the most expressive baby faces. With bright, eye-catching photos by a master photographer, this book is a collection of dozens of faces that Mom, Dad, and Baby will simply drool over! Each spread explores a different mood, emotion or important time in a baby's very busy day. Babies' faces will light up as they recognize other babies laughing, crying, cooing, and playing.

Age Group 4 months

What’s Happening at this Age

  • Beginning to swipe at books
  • ‘Helping’ turn pages by batting at the book
  • Laughing and making more sounds including back and forth ‘conversations’

Your baby is much more aware of the world around them now. They can turn their head toward sounds and smile or frown in response to things they hear. They’re also working to have control of their arms and hands. They may reach toward a book as you read it and try to grab it themselves. Making sure books are always within reach can help them with this. Continue to read to them and start to gently guide their hand to pat the pictures as you talk about what’s on the pages. Making reading time interactive will be thrilling for them!
