Where is Baby’s Belly Button? by Karen Katz

Not only will this book help your baby learn where her eyes, mouth and belly button are, she'll love lifting the flaps to find them. Karen Katz's books have bigger, sturdier flaps than most, so they'll stand up longer to not-so-gentle tugs.

Available at amazon.com, $5.39.
