"look the baby is happy" "look that baby looks sad"<br><br>
I am having touble finding one. I was looking at Amazon.com -- but you can't really look at the books. it is toooo hard to go look at books at a bookstore with DS -- he loves them toooooo much and is soooooo active now and will not be held back <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

This might be helpful: ABC Look at Me by Roberta Grabel Intrator.<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FABC-Look-Lift-Learn-Book%2Fdp%2F0843108398%2Fsr%3D1-1%2Fqid%3D1170861895%2Fref%3Dpd_bbs_sr_1%2F105-8550834-8461202%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/ABC-Look-Lift-...e=UTF8&s=books</a><br><br>
We have an edition that doesn't have the flaps, but the faces are great and expressive and multicultural and the words are pretty good overall.

Today I Feel.... by Jamie Lee Curtis<br>
It goes thru lots of emotions and it really cute, by DS loves it. Plus it has a emotion face wheel in the back that you can match up eyes and mouths.<br><br>
My Many Colored Days by Dr Suess<br>
It combines colors and emotions - we have the board book. Very toddler friendly.<br><br>
You can also call up you local library and ask the children's librarian for some suggestions. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

We recently had this board book out from the library: <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FBaby-Faces-DK-Publishing%2Fdp%2F0789436507%2Fsr%3D1-1%2Fqid%3D1170870265%2Fref%3Dpd_bbs_1%2F102-6136941-6419303%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks" target="_blank">DK Baby Faces</a>--it has photographs of baby faces and the emotion written underneath. DD loved it.

I have thought about just taking pictures of me, dh, dd, etc and putting them in a binder with plastic sleeves. Or you could probably do that with pictures out of magazines. (showing various emotions or whatever). I haven't done it yet, but it might work.
