I got this book for my older son when he was just a few months old. He is 2 now and this is one of his all-time favorite books. It's fun to read and what child doesn't love getting kissed?? His baby brother also enjoys it when we read this book. My parents visited from out of state recently and I videotaped them reading a few books, this one included. My toddler asks me to fast forward so that he can hear his grandpa read this story and watch them on TV. We give this book often as a gift because it is such a favorite.

"My tired little baby, do you need a kiss?" A cranky, crying, sleepy little one is about to go to bed. But first she needs "ten little kisses on teeny tiny toes" and "nine laughing kisses on busy, wriggly feet" from Mommy. Daddy's ready with "eight squishy kisses on chubby, yummy knees." Grandma plants "seven loud kisses on a pretty belly button." And so on... Baby is passed from one member of the family to the next for her good night kisses, and even the dog and cat get into the act..... Karen Katz's minimal text is engaging and filled with lots of love and charming descriptive words. Her bright and playful illustrations are large and inviting, rich in bold color and eye-catching shapes and patterns. Together word and art offer gentle, fun-filled opportunities to practice counting and to identify different body parts. Perfect for preschoolers as young as one, Counting Kisses is a sweet and heartwarming little book youngsters will beg to add to their bedtime ritual. "...two gentle kisses on tired closing eyes, one last kiss on your sleepy, dreamy head, and now it's time for baby's bed."

I bought this book for my daughter when she was four months old. From the first day she was absolutely captivated by the bright, colorful patterns in the pictures of this book. The story is so much fun and what baby could resist all those kisses? Now at ten months old she loves this book so much that I only have to recite the first line of the story, "My tired little baby, do you need a kiss..." or show her the cover of the book to elicit a huge, cheesy grin! After buying this book I was motivated to purchase several other books by Karen Katz. Her talent has made her my daughter's author/illustrator. Her books are the first chosen every time!

I bought this book for my 2 year old daughter. We read this book every night before we go to bed. She loves being kissed goodnight from toes to head. This book is simple enough that she knows the placement and quantity of kisses. I would highly recommend this book to be added to any child's bedtime ritual. I hope this book will be something she'll always remember when going to sleep.

This is a very sweet book. The first time I read it, I was quite teary when thinking of my baby daughter. The illustrations are rich and engaging. The simple counting "story", is laid out in a way that envelopes the reader(s) in love and "warm fuzzies". I like the way the book shows how "all" the family members love the baby and want her to be happy. (even the cat) This is a great book to develop a nighttime routine with. My child will go to be each night knowing how much she is really loved.

My daughter (2 yrs old) and son (1 yr old) and I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! It is so much fun to read it and to kiss them both from head to toe as described in the book. Great way to introduce counting and to enjoy reading together while interacting in the best way possible--kisses and giggles!

My daughter is not quite two and she loves this story - she always pulls it out of her bookshelf - especially at night. The pictures are so big and bright. It really appeals to her on a lot of different levels:
- She can point to her own body parts to show where the baby is getting her kisses.
- She can count along with each page.
- She can identify many characters in the book (mommy, daddy, baby, puppy, etc).
- And she loves the kissing!
The store is just so much fun - even if you don't do the kissing bit with your own child there is still so much to benefit from this tale!

I have two year old twins, and this is BY FAR their favorite book. They LOVE pointing at the numbers and hearts, and they know which body part comes next before I even turn the page. It's a sure-fire way to get them ready to go to sleep, and our own little ritual is that we end the book by saying "Mommy, Daddy, Sister, Grandma, Doggy, Kitty...and there's Baby, sleeping in her bed. Good night, Baby!" and then we each give the last page a kiss. What a fantastically warm and beautiful book!

I just bought this book for my 14 month old. I read to her every night before she goes to bed, and I thought this would be a cute way to end the night. But, you start by kissing her toes and feet, then knees and belly, and since I hold her on my lap, rolling her around for all the kisses gets her worked up. She thinks we're wrestling. I think it's cuter for a smaller baby, who you might put in a bouncy seat or something. We read it to her during the day, when we can roughhouse more. It just isn't one of her favorites.

This book is a big hit with our toddler. She loves to "read" it to her new brother. As the title suggests, there's lots of counting, kissing and everybody gets a turn. While the story is simple and the text is short, this can be a half hour bedtime event at our house.
