“Part of what makes this book work is the variety of faces Jeannie Roberts depicts. All those nose scrunchings, hair clutchings, ear pullings, and goofy grins are irresistible invitations into Ms. Roberts’ colorful, genial world. And the text will inspire its audience to try to guess the rhyme that’s just around the next page turn. Let’s Make Faces! has clear appeal to younger children (and their collaborative adults). But I think older kids will also enjoy pulling it off the shelf again when they’re feeling particularly silly and playful.”
