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.

Where is Baby's Belly Button is a book that teaches kids about their belly button, and encourages them to show where their body parts are. This is intended for toddlers who are just finding out what and where their body parts are, and great to encourage learning about their bodies.

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

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.

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

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.

Our daughter has loved this book for months. We first got it at 7 months and even then she was able to pull down the flaps with some help. She is almost a year old now and still pulls this book off the shelf almost every day. Each spread features a question (Where is baby's belly button?) and then

a flap to lift to find that body part (for example, revealing it under her shirt). It is fun to tickle the body part mentioned in the book and see our daughter giggle as she learns. These books are reasonably sturdy. She does bend the flaps if left to her own devices, but she hasn't ripped any off yet
