My son is almost 4 mos old, and this is easily his favorite book! He LOVES the big bright colorful pages. I can see his eyes light up each time I turn a page as he soaks up each bright color. It really grabs his attention and gets him cooing! I actually keep this book in his diaper bag for outings and for times that I need to turn a frown upside down. This book works for that, too! :o) Well worth it!

This book has been so loved by my two children, that I've also given it as a gift. Surprisingly, after use by two children the flaps are all still on. That's part good construction and part good supervision around flap books. This book can be reread many times at one sitting. I think it is very engaging because after you find the body part on the picture in the page, the child can find it on herself and then on you. The book is easy to use for teaching facial features and body parts. Plus, babies and toddlers love looking at pictures of babies. I would highly recommend this book for babies and toddlers.

My grandbaby loves the easy flip quality of these books, as well as the sturdy cardboard pages. It makes it easy for her to grasp and turn the pages as we read to her - over and over (and over!). the pictures are colorful and cute.

It is fun to read this book with children or grandchildren. They learn anatomy and will pick this book over and over to read again.

Again, again. My daughter loves lifting the flaps and seeing where baby's eyes, belly button, etc. are hiding. Has helped learning where her own parts are too.

This book is illustrated well and is interactive for babies. The book progresses to find the major features of a baby. I would use this book in pre-K and K as a tool for teaching about growing families, new babies, and to introduce body part studies. It is really cute with its lift-the flap feature, my baby loves it!!

This Karen Katz book was fabulous for introducing my baby to the wonderful world of reading. She was captivated by this book when she was about 9 months old.

Very round, very cute, very... childlike, for lack of a better word.And I always appreciate the effort in making a multiracial cast of kids, not everybody does that.Would be nice if the flaps were a little stronger, though. Unfortunately, they *will* rip off, so this book has to be supervised only :(

Where's Baby's Belly Button? is an interactive board book for toddlers by Karen Katz. Each spread contains an illustration of a round, smiling baby accompanied by a question asking where a certain part of the baby's body, like the belly button or eyes, is located. However, the sought-after parts are hidden under flips and flaps, great for kids who can't sit still and need to touch everything. The illustrations of the babies are simple and in warm, soothing colors. What's really great is that these babies are of different races, so no one feels left out. Where's Baby's Belly Button? is an ideal choice for toddlers just being introduced to the world of books. Since the story is repetitive and predictable, it could be a useful learning tool for children who are just becoming familiar with words and reading.The tenth anniversary edition of this popular book was just released this year.

The text is simple, relying on the lift-the-flap innovation to carry the story, which it does. Each spread starts with the first page asking the location of a different baby body part - hands, feet, belly button, and so on. The next page has a flap that hides the corresponding body part, and when lifted, uses a preposition to describe the discovered location. Even though the story is so simple, it has a lot of teaching points for young children, and my girls really love it. I adore seeing their faces light up whenever I pop up a flap. (I saw this a couple of years ago with my eldest, and am seeing it all over again with my infant.) The pictures are bright and colorful and feature babies, adding to the appeal for little ones. I definitely recommend this book, and others written by Karen Katz, as a steady favorite for small children.

I truly dislike the artwork in this book. But Evie loves the book, fold out pages throughout make it fun.

The concepts in this book are great for children learning object permanence. The only negative is the flaps that you lift up are really thin. My 9 month old bent and tore the flaps the first time we read the book.

This book is a favorite at our house!  My one year old brings it to us at least five times a day to read.  She loves lifting the flaps herself and pointing at the babies.Highly recommend!

I have three kids and this book is at the moment the favorite one in our house. Books like this one are a God-send. It is a series of flap pages with big bright easy-to-read text. After one reads the text, they can flip up the flap and reveal the part of the body being taught on the page. It is constructed of cardboard and heavy card stock. 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. The bright colorful illustrations serve to bring out the text and allow easy recognition of the body parts.

I highly recommend this book for all mother's with small children. My recommendation for older kids (around 10) is Why Some Cats are Rascals

I bought this book for my 10 month-old son last month and it has become his absolute favorite. When he sees me pull it out he starts to crack up!!! I highly recommend it. Its a great book!

Sturdy board book with colorful drawings of babies with parts of their body hidden. Good for toddlers to lift flaps and find the hidden body part and learn body part names. Keeps my two month old's attention. Good baby shower gift or gift for toddler. - Noga Delshad

I gave this book to my grandaughter for her 1st birthday and it has been her favorite ever since. It has helped her to identify her body parts and she loves lifting the flaps to see what is under them. She is 17 months old and still picks it out first when she comes to Grammy's house.

My 5 month old son loves this book it seems more than his toys or any of his dozens of other books! During the nighttime whining or fussiness period when no toys seem to keep him occupied, I just pull out this book and we'll read it together 7 - 8 times. He bats at the pictures and even tries to grab the flaps to pull as he is beginning to know what to expect. Super super book and we highly recommend it!
