Mommies and Babies
(by Simms Taback, Blue Apple $4.99 Score:)

Pairs of farm animal mommies and their babies parade through the pages of this small board book. Executed with the artist's typical bright colors and jovial spirit. The only text introduces the proper names for hen and chick, pig and piglets, sheep and lamb, etc. You might call it a knowing and naming young science book, but chances are you'll be talking about the things each pair of animals are doing and the colors and other objects on the pages. The pages are sturdy enough for little hands to turn independently without ripping.

WOW, It's a Cow
(by Trudy & Jay Harris/ illus. by Paige Keiser, Scholastic $8.99 Score:)

An entertaining lift-the-flap book for toddlers. Each page reveals a farm animal that is not a cow. But the hints in the rhyming text gives young listeners a clue about what animal will be behind the flaps. It's an old concept, but still new to a fresh generation of toddlers. 2 & up.

Baby Love
(by Helen Oxenbury, Little Simon $7.99 Score:)

Four perfect little rhymes with a cast of adorable multicultural babies are seen tickling, romping, clapping and napping in this set of charming board books. These books were all originally published separately in larger formats many years ago. But these mini size books fit little hands even better and nothing is lost in the shrinking size. The four books, Clap Hands, All Fall Down, Tickle, Tickle and Say Goodnight are classics that just got better. They come in a ribbon trimmed red slipcase that ties up to make a perfect baby shower gift or when visiting a new baby.

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.

A fabric book with a cottony ball sitting in a wagon that is attached with a ribbon.

Good for peek-a-boo discoveries as you turn the colorful fabric pages. This is safe enough for baby to explore after you have 'read' from front to back.

Mommy & Daddy Hugs & Kisses
(by Anne Gutman and Georg Hallensleben, Chronicle $19.99 Score:)

A cute set of board books about babies and their parents. Each book shows animal pairs and ends with baby and Mommy or Daddy. Not much story here, but the art is charming and the concepts are warm and fuzzy. The box is designed so that you can put photos of the little one’s parents on each side of the box…a little extra touch. 1 & up.
