The Best Kind of Kiss
Little Hare Books, 2012
Pbk, RRP $A14.95
There are all sorts of kisses a little girl can have – big kisses, small kisses, pecky kisses, and smoochy, lip-smacky kisses – and they don’t all come from mummy. In fact, in this cute book for pre-schoolers, they come from the most unlikely sources, all of which underline that delightful innocence of the very young child. Accompanied by appealing illustrations which are integral to telling the tale, the author has created one of those special stories that I know will become a bedtime favourite.
Miss 6 loves the rosy-cosy-grandma-kiss but agrees with the choice of the best sort of kiss of all; Miss 16-months just liked snuggling in and listening to the flow and rhythm of the language and looking at the pictures.
This would be one to put in that special collection you have for parents who are looking for that just-right bedtime book. Give them this one and they’ll know you know your stuff and come back for more.
