In a playful lift-the-flap title, Katz’s cherubs are getting in touch with their feelings.
The multicultural cast of plump babies demonstrates hungry, happy, sleepy, silly, sad and loved. The first half of each page spread sets the stage and asks readers such questions as, “Baby wants milk and crackers. How does baby feel?” Across the spread, on the facing page, there’s a full-size flap illustrating the scene in Katz’s bold cartoons and her colorful and recognizable patterns. Each baby’s full emotional state is both pictured and captioned under the flap with parents helpfully in the background to soothe, cuddle or engage.
An up-to-standard addition to Katz’s extensive board-book oeuvre. (Board book. 6 mos.-3)
