Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Pucker up for an orderly (but still delightful) display of the many types of kisses one might find in a barnyard. Each double-page spread is filled with a pleasingly plump parent representing a variety of species bestowing his or her own special brand of loving smacker upon the offspring. The text begins, “Little ones love kisses,” before moving on to specifics: “Little Chick loves Cluck kisses. Little Calf loves Mooo kisses. Little Kid loves Maaa kisses.” The closing scene features a human mother embracing and kissing her young child. Tafuri’s artwork radiates gentleness: her choice of soft colors, the placement of the animals against the pastoral background, their comfortable body language, and in the lovingly given and received kisses themselves. Kids will be hard pressed not to join in. For other kiss-fests, see Ann Whitford Paul’s If Animals Kissed Goodnight (2008) and Joanne Ryder’s Won’t You Be My Kissaroo? (2004). Preschool-Kindergarten. --Randall Enos

* "Many bedtime books featuring animal sound exist, but few are executed with such skill; this one has the potential to become a classic."—Kirkus

What a beautifully written and illustrated book for the wee ones this offering is! I found the simple text and the wonderful pen and water color paintings absolutely delightful. I have nothing but praise for this work and it would be extremely difficult to find fault with any aspect.

This is a large picture book. It explores the world of kisses...Little Lamb Kisses, Little Kitten Kisses, chicks, ducks, and puppies and on. Each animal is presented with a double page spread. A good example is that of the mommy duck with here four little ones on a pond with the text reading "Little Duckling's love Peep Kisses." The painting of the mommy duck and her duckling are simple, bold and mellow and actually quite detailed when you consider the scope of the painting.

I love the Bunny Love pages..."Even Little Bunny Loves quite - Sniff - Kisses!"

Keep in mind that the author, Nancy Tafuri has written, illustrated and published almost 50 children's books over the years and is a Caldecott Honor recipient for her work, "Have you Seen My Duckling?" This is a skillful writer and artist - actually one of my favorite.

This work is an ideal bed-time story and the simple words are soothing and at the same time ideal for introducing the young child to reading.

You simply get a very warm feeling reading this work and there is no doubt your child will too...it is a pure and simple message of love.

The book is well made and is of the quality that will stand up to many readings and is one of those books that will quite likely be passed down from one generation to the next.

This one is a complete winner and should be added to your child's library.

Format: Hardcover
This is a beautifully illustrated, sweet story about all the different kind of kisses that are around us. This particular story is set at the farm, and in reading this book with my little girl we loved seeing the different kind of kisses and love that take place between the various animals and their little ones. From mice, birds, ducks, cats, goats, dogs and more. This delightful story will be a big hit with young children. The bright colors and large illustrations make it easy to captivate young readers' attentions. My daughter and I loved looking for the tiny details hidden on each page, like the blue bird who's featured on each page, and the tiny bugs. The story ends with the best kiss of all, a kiss from a mother to her sleeping little one. I highly recommend picking this book up!

What a lovely book! Here is another winner from Nancy Tafuri. This is an animal noises book, with large, colorful attractive illustrations which can easily be seen from across the room (perfect for storytime!) A few of the animals have unusual or unexpected noises: "peep" for ducklings, and "eep" for baby mice, "sniff" for baby bunnies. Observant readers will note the tiny bluebird that flies across each page, as you "travel" through the barnyard and surrounding countryside many of the previously featured animals can be seen in the background. The final page features "the best kiss of all" with a mother wearing a prominent wedding ring kissing a toddler to sleep. Perfect for very young children.

My almost two year old daughter enjoys this book immensely - "kisses" has quickly become one of her favorites! She likes to imitate the baby animal noises and give hero my a kid at the end of the book :-)

My little one loves Nancy Tafuri. The art is fantastic, as always. And we love this story. Great bed time story for a baby or toddler. We love to examine the pictures and get to know all the animals.

My little girl loves this book. She constantly asks for various animal type kisses. Very cute book. Not tear resistant though.
