Kiss, Kiss!
Reviewed in School Library Journal (US)
PreS-Gr 2.
...The large, lushly detailed paintings feature bright backgrounds and a cast of appealing creatures, including lions, elephants, and zebras, which will be easily identified by young listeners. With a rounded body, a slight curl to his stubby tail, perky cartoon-style eyes, and a pink blush on his cheeks, Baby Hippo is endearing. The brief, repetitive text and artwork are well suited to a crowd, making this a natural for lap-sit programs. While there are many books about parent-child love and separation, the accessibility of this one to the very young, ESL families, and even beginning readers should earn Kiss Kiss! a place on library shelves.-Faith Brautigam, Gail Borden Public Library, Elgin, IL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
