Seven anxious mother animals ask the title question, "Where is my baby?" The babies are revealed beneath each flap, as are their particular baby animal names (piglet, kid, chick, lamb, etc.), and each makes its signature sound (an oink, moo, meow, quack, chirp, baa, etc.). When turned, the flap changes the mother's expression from worried to delighted. Somehow, Mr. Taback is able to capture a mother's fond look on each of his animal creations. The last spread shows a parade of all the mother and baby pairs.
Amazon customer review: "This book makes wonderful use of flaps. It has been one of my son's favorite books since he was 12 months old! The pages are made of sturdy material [that] helps it hold up to many "self" readings by my baby! The lively colored art keeps both child and parents' attention. A must buy! I am giving it to every child on our Holiday list this year."
