My baby is OBSESSED with this book. Absolutely loves all the different faces and the mirror at the back. I love that it introduces emotions, as I want to raise an emotionally intelligent child. I also love that the babies included are diverse, as I want to ensure my child is exposed to a wide range of other people.
However, after paying closer attention to the book, I've realized that it's deeply problematic. All the white babies in the book are happy or surprised or silly. The babies of colour are the only ones that are sad/angry. Since the faces change on each double page, I figured that at very least, the white baby who is featured as the "happy" baby would be sad/angry/etc on other pages. Nope! White baby is always happy. The babies of colour do have happy faces on some pages, but it's still hugely problematic. It's not acceptable that it's racially stigmatizing.

. He loves to see the babies' faces and even try to make some expressions. He also loves the mirror at the very end. This book is fantastic and there is nothing discriminatorial about the pictures!

“Look at the HAPPY baby”
Smiling blond, white baby.
“Look at the SAD baby”
Sad baby of color.
“Look at the ANGRY baby”
Angry baby of color.
“Look at the SURPRISED baby”
Shocked baby of color.
“Look at the SILLY baby”
Smiling white baby.
There are photos of each baby making a variety of expressions, but the featured images assign the two smiles to the two white babies, leaving two very negative and one slightly negative emotions for the babies of color. This could have VERY EASILY been done differently, yet it chose to follow stereotypes. Kids don’t need to see more examples of happy white babies - big editing mistake.

He is too young to match the faces with the activities (13 months now) but it's a nice way to introduce him to emotions. Lately, I am addressing his emotions and I will present him the mirror in the last page of the book so for him to relate what I am addressing with his own reaction. I would definitely recommend it.
