“The tender photos will draw in viewers of any age.”—Kirkus
“Smooch, baby, smooch./ Lips are made for kissing./ Hug, baby, hug./ It’s you I have been missing.” Verdick and Lisovskis combine sweet-natured verse with photographs of babies giving and receiving affection. The close-up b&w photos are attention-grabbing, and the accompanying pastel cartoons add to the nursery rhyme vibe. A final spread offers “cuddle time” tips for adults and information about the importance of touch for babies. Simultaneously available: Move. Up to age 2. – Publishers Weekly
