Faces

Publisher: Walker Books

Happy, sad, angry, shy: Jan Pieńkowski explores all manner of facial expressions and emotions in this bright and original book for toddlers, full of his trademark bright, thick-outlined illustration.

A little boy has a brave face when Mum puts a plaster on his knee at the beach; a cheeky boy pulls faces in the back of the car; and a jealous toddler bangs a drum noisily, trying to divert Mum’s attention from the new baby.

Great fun for toddlers and preschoolers who will love this bright, helpful book, which also depicts a range of ethnic diversity.
