Babies are truly a mystery. As adults, we are left to guess when it comes to trying to figure out what they mean with their myriad facial contortions and expressions.

"Hey, Baby! Look at you, looking at me, looking at you looking at me," says the parent narrator of this interactive book that helps new parents interact with babies as young as two months. Big close-up photographs illustrate each phrase--"waving at me, waving at you, waving at me" and so on through smiling, feeding, hugging, splashing, peeking, all the things babies do. Lynn Reiser's minimal text promotes early language development while it helps cement the bond between parent and baby. Penny Gentieu's adorable photographs of real babies and their parents portray the warmth of that bond.

A NATURAL FOLLOW-UP to parent-baby bonding seen in You and Me, Baby!, Lynn Reiser and Penny Gentieu's new concept book focuses on sibling bonding of the two-to-four year old with the new baby in the family. Told in the voice of the "big" brother or sister, close-up photos show the two siblings together doing what each does best, such as drinking from bottle versus from a cup, or giving a toothless gummy smile versus a big toothy grin. It's a nice mix of diverse children of both genders. Here is an upbeat book that helps preschool siblings feel special and important as it promotes a loving relationship.
