Format: Board book
My son loves all books. The only time he will sit still is when I read to him. The rest of the time, he is on the move (even when he's eating). When I got him this book, he absolutely lit up! I had never seen a book elicit the kind of joy and amazement that this book does. So, it is defintely the favorite one in our house. I've read it to him hundreds of times, but he still giggles when I lift the first flap to expose Baby's eyes. He bends down to kiss every baby on every page. (Some of the pages are starting to stick together from all his wet kisses!) Some of the flaps are wearing down a bit from his uncoordinated hands trying to lift the flaps. But, I won't mind spending the extra $$ for a new one if I need to. The look on his face when I read him this book gets me every time!!

Every once in a while, I come across a book that appeals to the adult in me, because it's educational, artistic, amusing or perhaps all of the above, but what fascinates me is when my son discovers the real value in a work, and teaches me a thing or two along the way. To adults "Where is the Baby's Belly Button" written and illustrated by Karen Katz appears to be a simple 14-page book that teaches body parts, but to children it's much more.
This nifty little board book is essentially a peek-a-boo book with flaps. It measures approximately 8 ¼" x 7 ½" x ½ ", and is constructed of cardboard with heavy card stock for the flaps. The images are simply illustrated, yet brightly colored with creatively contrasted backgrounds that produce interest. The text appears on the left side of the book with bold, solid colored backdrops that emphasis the large black printing, and compliment the illustrations on the opposing page. The writing consists of short, four or five word sentences, such as, "Where are baby's eyes?" The reader lifts the flap and it says, "Under the hat." The picture shows a baby hiding under a hat, and when the flap is lifted the baby's face is revealed. She is pointing to her eyes.
"Where is the Baby's Belly Button" has been one of my son's most requested books for a year now; he's nearly two-years old. He lovingly refers to this book as the "baby" book, and he has taught me that he has learned where his eyes, mouth, belly button, feet, and hands are, in addition to understanding the meaning of the words, hat, cup, shirt, cat, bubbles and WHERE. The question, "Where?" comes out of his mouth probably 20 or 30 times everyday, and I am certain it's because of this book.

"Where Is Baby's Belly Button? A Lift-the-Flap Book" - by Karen Katz.
As an ESL and newcomers classroom teacher (A newcomers classroom is for children who have been in country for less than a year, speak English as a second language and such classrooms use scaffolded methods of teaching in hopes of being able to transition these children to a mainstream classroom), I often have to be innovative in how to teach primary and intermediate children basic language skills that mainstream children of their own grade level would consider "baby" lessons.
Books like this one are a God-send. I can drill this book a few times a week at the beginning of the school year and within a few weeks, all of my students have the parts of the body from this book down pat. My older children (intermediates - 4th to 6th grade) at first objected to the book, but then they started having fun and forgot about the book being a "baby" book.
The book itself is a series of flap pages with big bright easy-to-read text. After one reads the text, they can flip up the flap and reveal the part of the body being taught on the page. It is constructed of cardboard and heavy card stock. The simple language phrases such as "Where is baby's belly button?" are easy for children to memorize and use. The bright colorful illustrations serve to bring out the text and allow easy recognition of the parts of the body.
I highly recommend this book for infants, younger ESL (English as a Second Language) learners, and younger children in general.

I purchased this book as I was setting up my daughter's nursery library before she was born. I was immediately attracted to the simplicity of the text, strong construction, and big, brightly colored, eye-catching illustrations. I began reading it to my daughter at age 4 months. She is now 10 months old and absolutely loves this book! When she sees me take it out of her closet her eyes light up and she literally squeals with delight. We read it at least 5 times each night. She now is able to lift the flaps on the book and anticipates the ending question, "Where is baby?". I am just about to purchase the entire collection of books written and illustrated by Karen Katz for my daughter's 1 year birthday. She is a brilliant author and illustrator. This book is a must have for any baby/child.

I really enjoy this book. The wording is simple, the drawings are bright and colorful. This holds a 7 month old's attention just fine! My only negative is about the flaps. While the book itself is made of sturdy board, the flaps are very thin & slick. They can be difficult to lift (even for adult fingers) and when a 7 month old wants to "help" it is tough to have hands on without the flaps tearing.
All in all - a great book with simple lessons about where the eyes, hands, feet, belly button, etc...are on a child. The ending is the best one - we always have a mini-game of peek-a-boo with the last 'baby' in the book.
Would recommend to all, but also recommend keeping the flaps just out of reach.
