I showed him once how to kiss the pictures, and he immediately started to kiss every page.

My 15 month old daughter always brings me this book to read to her. She prefers interactive books (touch-and-feel, lift-a-flap) and that continues with this one. The bright and colorful pictures of this boardbook really capture her eye. The book has a scratchy cat kiss, a sticky dog kiss, a velvety cow kiss, a fuzzy bear kiss, a rubbery fish kiss and a squeeky pig kiss. The textures are great. She has enjoyed it so much that I am ordering it for a one year old's birthday gift.

Format: Board book
Saltzberg has definitely created a "winner" in this his first book on Animal Kisses. From the outset, this book captures children's attention with vibrant colors and simple images, add to that, the appeal of differing textures and beginner's text for easy comprehension. "Do you like scratchy cat kisses?" The reader sees a large yellow cat, highly contrasted, on a red and violet background with its tongue sticking out, SANDPAPER - scratchy texture. Children find "touch and feel" books irresistible and love the expedition through tactile territory. Additional textures include: FELT - velvety cows nose, STICKY - dogs tongue, FUR - fuzzy bear kisses, PLASTIC - rubbery fish kisses, and VELVET - squeaky pig kisses. Oh, and Saltzberg earns BONUS points for placing an actual squeaker in the pigs nose! Terrific tactile tale! One-year and up.

This is a wonderfully colorful interactive book with a touch and feel experience for young children. The book has a textured scratchy cat kiss, a sticky dog kiss, a velvety cow kiss, a fuzzy bear kiss, a rubbery fish kiss and a squeeky pig kiss. Little ones love this book! What child can avoid kissing the pictures of these charming creatures? A highly recommended book for parents with young children.

What a great interactive books for little ones!! My 2-year-old loves this book, and it has no parts for her to pull off (she ruins the lift-the-flap books...) She loves feeling the puppy's sticky tongue, the cat's scratchy tongue, the cow's velvety nose, etc. I came back to see if there are more of the same type of books from this author!

This is my son's very first favorite book. I introduced it to him when he was 3 months old. The large, high-contrast images kept him interested, the touch-and-feel parts let him interact with the book, and the thick pages were easy for him to turn. There are children who begin kindergarten with no idea what to do with a book -- which way is up, what to do with the pages, etc. This is a fun way to get your child used to books. I give this book to all new mommy's. (This is probably an unnecessary hint, but: Begin reading the book by saying "What kind of kisses do you like?" Then turn each page..."Do you like sticky dog kisses?" "Do you like velvety cow kisses?" etc.)

My four month old daughter loves this book and its her favorite of all her books including other touch and feel ones. I think the bright colours attract her attention. If she is getting cranky I can be sure that she will sit on my knee as I read her this book. I always read it for her twice through as it is not very long and repetition is good for young children.

I have two sons. This is a great book for young kids (up to 24 months or so); simple enough to hold their attention. I routinely buy it for baby showers. Two issues that you should know about, though:

1)The squeaker starts out hard to squeak (you have to hit it in the beginning) but it loosens up and gets more user-friendly over time.

2)The "texture-feeling spots" are a bit small; we get around this issue by having each animal "kiss" my sons (raise the book to their faces) so they get to feel the texture with their noses and lips.

My 10-month-old twins love this book. They fight over it! They love to feel the different textures. Makes an excellent gift!
