Sweet, simple, and sized just right for little hands, Kiss, Kiss is great for storytime snuggling around the love-liest holiday of the year.
In musical language translated from Jennifer Couëlle’s sublime French text, this book celebrates the sweet gesture as a small child experiences it: in a parent’s snug goodnight, a baby’s sticky smooch, and a healing touch on a scraped knee. Jacque Laplante’s bright illustrations match liveliness with tenderness, delineating a charming love-filled world in deceptively childlike strokes. Matching end papers wrap it all up with a big red bow.
Not so sappy that it will give readers cavities, Kiss, Kiss will add a soupçon of sweetness to Valentine’s Day– or any day of the year.
A kiss on the ear, a kiss on the nose
Tickles you down to the tips of your toes
A lovely, magical gift for wee ones ages 3-6, Kiss, Kiss can’t be missed.
