Children four years of age and older are challenged to use their imaginations to find faces in some odd or unlikely places. A chair, the bottom of a single flip-flop, the top of a pop-top beverage can, and a portable air conditioner are just some of the odd items that can look like a face.

Once the theme has been introduced the author moves on to showing examples of faces fashioned from vegetables and fruits, and a variety of tools, plus a wide range of twigs, leaves and bark found outside.

'Now that we've found faces, we are ready to make faces. Let's gather more stuff!' And with that, Piven shows how various materials can be used to create noses and mouths. The pages that follow then illustrate how you can create faces that display various emotions or resemble people like family members.

The final section of this volume invites the reader to participate by finding a number of household items that can be make into funny faces. Follow along and you'll have lots of fun.

This would be a good rainy day activity book or one grandparents might want to have handy when the little ones come to visit. Lower grade teachers will also find this a very useful picture book.
