How Does Baby Feel?
Karen Katz. Little Simon, $6.99 (14p) ISBN 978-1-4424-5204-6
Readers can guess the emotions that six rosy-cheeked babies are feeling in various situations in this characteristically well-executed lift-the-flap book from Katz. “Baby wants milk and crackers,” Katz writes in the first scene, as an African-American baby in a floral top and diaper reaches for her bottle and a tray of goodies. “How does baby feel?” The answer appears underneath a large flap that lifts vertically and shows the same baby happily chowing down in her high chair. The formula repeats as Katz’s babies demonstrate feeling happy, sad, silly, sleepy, and loved. A tidy and effective introduction to familiar emotions. Ages 1–4. (Jan.)
