In her very first month, B was an expert at telling us when she was feeling something– when she was hungry, tired, or couldn’t stand one, more, second of being in that barely wet diaper.
Month by month babies get better at sharing their feelings. Happy giggles from watching someone act in a wild and silly living room production. Sad cries because someone they love momentarily left the room. Angry stomps from being told “No way,” after they had so much fun throwing toys across the room with all of their little-armed might.
There are so many emotions a baby can feel (ahem, just like adults!), and this lift-the-flap book is written and illustrated in the perfect way.
Reading this adorable book, your little one gets to learn how someone’s actions hint at how they’re feeling– whether it be happy, hungry, loved, sad, silly or sleepy.
The first spread opens to a baby wiggling and reaching up for the kitchen counter where her snack is waiting.
“Baby wants milk and crackers. How is baby feeling?” Lifting the flap reveals the baby is hungry. Now, she is happy as can be having a snack in her high chair. Keep in mind, this page has the power to create instant hunger in the tummy of your child if they are familiar with the words “milk,” “crackers,” or “hungry.”
Karen Katz has a bunch of baby books out there, and we can’t wait to get our hands on another.
