 book reviews for children booksI couldn’t resist using this photo of my daughter reading. She’s about 3 months old here and right from when she was a little bub she’s had a real affinity with books. So I thought I would annotate one of her favourite books.

Title:  Baby Faces Peekaboo

Publisher(s): Dorling Kindersley Limited

Format: Hard cover, 12 pages, flaps to lift, full colour, photographs, mirror on the back page

Ages: Baby to toddler.

Synopsis: The book is hiding all kinds of faces for young readers to try and find. There are happy and sad faces as well as many other kinds. The faces are hidden behind giant flaps that children will need to lift to reveal the different baby faces. There are also shiny, smooth, soft and bumpy surfaces for the reader to touch.

Review: This book is really interesting and dazzling for young readers. There are real photographs of babies and children as well as photographs of soft toys and teddies. These are great as your child can relate to them. Including the surfaces for readers to touch makes the reading experience more interactive.

Uses: When your child is a baby this book is a great way to introduce different facial expressions to them. When your child becomes a toddler you can begin to talk about emotions and the different types of emotions that people can have. With my daughter I often ask her to find the ‘sad’ or ‘happy’ baby and then show me how she is either ‘happy’ or ‘sad’. The mirror is also good to use with your child to show what the different faces they make look like. When your child begins talking you can ask what types of things can make him/her happy or sad.
