  1. This is a nice sturdy book with colorful drawings of babies with some part of their body hidden. Each page asks, “Where is baby’s …?” Toddlers delight in lifting the flaps to find the hidden pictures. The pictures are bright and cute with eye-catching fabric and wallpaper patterns. A very attractive book, and perfect for that stage when toddlers become fascinated with their belly buttons! My 17 month old has really enjoyed this book. It can be very helpful in getting kids to name body parts, and it’s fun for both the baby and the parents to read. Highly recommended.

  2. First of all, I have NEVER reviewed a children’s book, let alone a board book. However, I cannot let this one go unrecognized. My daughter received this from an aunt as a baby gift and I started reading it to her at 4 months. She loved the bright colors and would lay next to me transfixed as we looked at it over-and-over again. She is now 8 months old and LOVES IT EVEN MORE!!! It goes with us on EVERY road trip and let me tell you, when she gets tired of sitting in her car seat, all I have to do is show her the book and her fussy face turns into intant smiles and “babble” and kicking legs become motionless! I am NOT exaggerating. My daughter especially loves the “Where’s baby’s eyes” page and giggles every time I lift the flap. The book has also become a favorite chew toy now that she’s beginning to sprout teeth. I’m ordering the authors other books today so that we have a complete set. From a structure standpoint, the pages are very sturdy and the flaps are very secure. I recommend it to any parent looking to spark their child’s interest in books. It certainly beats plopping them down in front of the television to watch Baby Einstein videos (which, by the way, my daughter HATES), but I’ll leave my dislike for these for another review.

  3. My son loves all books. The only time he will sit still is when I read to him. The rest of the time, he is on the move (even when he’s eating). When I got him this book, he absolutely lit up! I had never seen a book elicit the kind of joy and amazement that this book does. So, it is defintely the favorite one in our house. I’ve read it to him hundreds of times, but he still giggles when I lift the first flap to expose Baby’s eyes. He bends down to kiss every baby on every page. (Some of the pages are starting to stick together from all his wet kisses!) Some of the flaps are wearing down a bit from his uncoordinated hands trying to lift the flaps. But, I won’t mind spending the extra $$ for a new one if I need to. The look on his face when I read him this book gets me every time!!

  4. Both of my children (now 18 months and 3) learned many body parts from this book, which encourages children to lift the flaps and search for babies’ hands (under the bubbles!), toes, and even belly buttons. The illustrations are colorful and simple, which is very engaging for a 12-18 month old. I also love the focus on learning spatial relations (behind, under, etc.), and the great fine-motor skill practice that comes from lifting these oversized flaps. The flaps are as sturdy as most, but they will eventually separate from the book, o keep your wide scotch tape handy!

  5. Every once in a while, I come across a book that appeals to the adult in me, because it’s educational, artistic, amusing or perhaps all of the above, but what fascinates me is when my son discovers the real value in a work, and teaches me a thing or two along the way. To adults “Where is the Baby’s Belly Button” written and illustrated by Karen Katz appears to be a simple 14-page book that teaches body parts, but to children it’s much more.
    This nifty little board book is essentially a peek-a-boo book with flaps. It measures approximately 8 ¼” x 7 ½” x ½ “, and is constructed of cardboard with heavy card stock for the flaps. The images are simply illustrated, yet brightly colored with creatively contrasted backgrounds that produce interest. The text appears on the left side of the book with bold, solid colored backdrops that emphasis the large black printing, and compliment the illustrations on the opposing page. The writing consists of short, four or five word sentences, such as, “Where are baby’s eyes?” The reader lifts the flap and it says, “Under the hat.” The picture shows a baby hiding under a hat, and when the flap is lifted the baby’s face is revealed. She is pointing to her eyes.
    “Where is the Baby’s Belly Button” has been one of my son’s most requested books for a year now; he’s nearly two-years old. He lovingly refers to this book as the “baby” book, and he has taught me that he has learned where his eyes, mouth, belly button, feet, and hands are, in addition to understanding the meaning of the words, hat, cup, shirt, cat, bubbles and WHERE. The question, “Where?” comes out of his mouth probably 20 or 30 times everyday, and I am certain it’s because of this book.Read more ›

  6. This a wonderful first book to enjoy with your baby. It is in beautiful bright colors and it’s small size is easy for you and baby to handle.
    It asks a series of questions of “Where is baby’s …, and when you and your baby lift the flap there is the belly button, or nose or whatever. The baby in the pictures always looks so happy that your baby will laugh and laugh.
    This is sturdy book that can withstand lots of handling, and if your baby chews on the book it will just look a little the worse for wear, but won’t be harmed.
    This is a great book!
