My Daddy
(by Guido Van Genechten, Clavis $12.95 Score:)

Colorful images of father and son capture the fun the pair share. There is no real story, but rather a catalog of the active things they like to do together. Printed on sturdy cardboard stock, this is a book for toddlers. Good for talking about what is happening in the pictures and for making connections between their own Daddy and the games played in the pictures.

2010 Award
American Babies
(developed by Global Fund for Children, Charlesbridge $6.99 Score:)

A collection of full color photos of a multicultural cast of babies and toddlers. There is a small text but the beauty is in the images on every page. These are taken by many different photographers, every image is a gem. Babies and toddlers like looking at pictures of other children and there's a lot to talk about as you turn the pages, depending on the interest and age of your lapsitter. One time you could find the baby's mouth, eyes, nose, teeth, etc. Another time you can talk about the baby's clothes or expression or what she is eating or looking at. Done on sturdy cardboard stock, this is a book toddlers will enjoy solo after you have shared it a few times. You do need to set the scene by introducing the concepts.

Where Is Baby's Belly Button
(by Karen Katz, Little Simon $9.99 Score:)

Karen Katz's award-winning classic is re-issued in an oversized 10th anniversary edition and it's even better than the original. The lift-the-flaps book has a cast of multicultural babies doing what babies do. One hides under a hat until you lift the hat flap and see baby's eyes. Another's mouth is covered till you pull the cup flap. Baby lifts her shirt and there it is--her belly button. This sturdy picture book is printed on sturdy cardboard and will withstand encore readings. It's also short and a lot like games you play to help baby learn the names of body parts. Karen Katz's use of vibrant colors and happy looking babies will make this a favorite book you will need to read again and again! 9 months & up.

2009 Awards
Dwell Studio Look
(Dwell Studio, Blue Apple/Chronicle $6.99 Score:)

Infants will be visually attracted to the bold black and white single images that alternate with the slick feeling ones in color. This may eventually become a knowing, naming and touching book, but for the youngest lapsitter, it is a gazing book. Unlike earlier black and white graphic books with targets and faces and other eye catching images, this one has less high contrast patterns. The items chosen for illustration are also less familiar, i.e. a swan, rhino, camel. They are a little on the abstract side for babies. Still they may hold more visual interest and the satin touch of the forms on the page are sure to interest little hands.

You can put the ball into, behind, through, and under the many spots provided in this little book.  Baby will have fun finding the ball in all the hiding places.
