Mrs. Mustard's Baby Faces by Jane Wattenberg


Mrs. Mustard's Baby Faces by Jane Wattenberg

Nothing is more enticing to a baby than another baby. This vibrantly colored folding board book contains twelve pictures of darling baby faces against a variety of backgrounds--on one side there are six happy, smiling babies and on the other, six cranky, crying babies.The book folds open accordion style, so it can stand up in a crib or on the floor to amuse even the youngest infant. The sturdy board construction is designed to withstand baby's curiosity and provide some lasting power to baby's first book. Parents, teachers, and caregivers can use Mrs. Mustard's Baby Faces to entertain infants and to help toddlers examine the complicated range of emotions falling under the general labels happy and sad.


This endearing collection will be a terrific treat for babies. Publisher's Weekly

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
