Author/photographer Arlene Alda has produced yet another brilliantly simple rhyming safari — this time in search of faces in unusual places.

These faces are found on buildings, in trees, mailboxes, and fountains. Coy, funny, grumpy, comical, or sad, they are almost anywhere a child’s imagination wants to go. Whimsical text heightens the search and helps us find the unusual characters who are quietly gathered all around us. Alda’s unique through-the-lens perceptions will launch young children on a visual adventure that just might be hard to return from. The easy-to-read text and trampe d’oeil photos make Here a Face, There a Face perfect for the young or young at heart. This is Arlene Alda’s third, and perhaps her most clever photographic essay. Look for The Book of ZZZs and Did You Say Pears?...

    I love books that challenge my kids. Especially when they stimulate their imagination and help them to look at the world in a different way.Arlene Alda's book does just that. In "Here a Face, There a Face" she anthropomorphises every day things like pots and sinks; so that a moss covered tree appears to be whistling some tunes (more images at the website), and a building with large round windows and decorative carvings looks like it is peering out at the world from under lovely eyebrows.The artwork ranges from cute to lovely, and is nearly always surprising.Check this book out and maybe like us you'll be trying to find, and even make!, your own creations.Pam T~mom and reviewer for BooksforKids-reviews

    This book is a series of pictures of different objects. You are asked to see the faces in these objects. One page has an old tree with knots in it. The knots positions on the tree make it look like it has two eyes and an open mouth. The caption reads “An old tree whistles tunes.”I liked that it made you think about everyday things in a different way. It had you looking at objects as if they had faces and it made them seem human or that they at least had feelings.

    This is the sort of book the late great Tana Hoban used to do. You don't just read 1,2,3 with a kid--you pore over it together, so the text really isn't much of an issue.This is just the sort of thing to help kids stimulate their sadly underused imaginations--hopefully it will inspire them to look for "faces" all over the place!

    This is a fun, artsy book that shows creative photographs that depict faces. Some are more obvious than others, but they are all fun. And the narrative is short, rhyming and adds to the artsy feel of the book. We didn't really understand the last page, though. What did it have to do with the rest of the book?

    Little ones will squeal with delight when they find faces in faucets, doors, mailboxes, old trees, flowers, garbage cans, etc.These book helps you look at the world differently. It is a lot of fun for both you and your child.

    Environmental photographs show faces everywhere. Fun to read to a elementary age group, so they understand the concepts.

    The pictures are interesting and the text is not equal to the quality of the pictures.

    This book is for every person who sees a face in objects. I see faces all the time. Although some of the faces were a stretch for me.
