Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-Baby Hippo forgets to kiss his mama good-bye before he goes off to play. As he walks through the jungle, he sees other animal babies kissing their mothers, so he returns home and makes amends. The large, lushly detailed paintings feature bright backgrounds and a cast of appealing creatures, including lions, elephants, and zebras, which will be easily identified by young listeners. With a rounded body, a slight curl to his stubby tail, perky cartoon-style eyes, and a pink blush on his cheeks, Baby Hippo is endearing. The brief, repetitive text and artwork are well suited to a crowd, making this a natural for lap-sit programs. While there are many books about parent-child love and separation, the accessibility of this one to the very young, ESL families, and even beginning readers should earn Kiss Kiss! a place on library shelves.

From Booklist

PreS. When Baby Hippo wakes up, he is in such a hurry to go and play that he forgets to give his mama a kiss. As he waddles through the squelchy mud, he hears "Kiss, kiss!" and he sees a mama elephant kissing her baby. Around the bumpy, lumpy rocks, he hears "Kiss, kiss!" again, and he sees a rhino and its baby. In the long, long grass, a papa lion and his cub are kissing; then he sees a zebra and a chimp and their babies. Sure enough, Baby Hippo retraces his steps to do what he has forgotten to do, "Kiss, kiss!" his mama. Like Wild's Our Granny (1993), this is a story filled with movement and physical affection. The lap-sit audience will love the squishy, lumpy sounds and the repetition of the text as they point to the animals in the clear, bright pictures. Hazel Rochman

My 2 year old daughter loves this book! We read it together almost every night just before she goes to sleep. It has very simple, repetitive text that is easy for kids to follow and 'fill in' as you read. There are several other animals in the pictures on each page, and my daughter loves to point them out when we read. I would highly recommend this book!

My 17 month old granddaughter loves this book, and I love reading it to her. She likes to make the sounds of each animal. The pictures are great, and it is easy to read with expression. We read it several times a day and every night before going to bed. I highly recommend this book.

My 6-year-old is learning to read, and the repetition in this book gives her reading fluency a little boost. My 3-year-old daughter is not talking quite as fluently as she should, and this book is helpful for her because of 1) word repetition, 2) texture words with pictures that match, 3) prepositions such as over, under, behind, through, and so on. Both girls love the bold artwork.

My 18 month old daughter will not put this book down. I borrowed it from the library and renewed it twice. I have to return the book today so I'm going to buy a copy. It is definitely a cute book for young children.

Margaret Wild, Kiss Kiss! (Simon and Schuster, 2003)

A baby hippo is eager to get an early start on playing and forgets to give his mother a kiss goodbye in the morning. He traverses various types of terrain (We're Going on a Ghost Hunt-style), witnessing a number of other types of animals kids usually love kissing their babies, then realizes what he forgot and heads right back for home. Fun illustrations (going back through the tall, tall grass is my favorite), strong rhythm, and lots of love by all the animals are making this one a current favorite at Goat Central. *** ½

I got this book for last year's Valentine's Day for my then almost 3 year-old daughter. She always wanted to check this book out whenever we went to the library so I got it for her on Amazon. She's loved and still loves having this book read to her. Now her 2 year-old little sister joins in and asks for this book too at bedtime. I hear their daddy reading this book to them during bedtime story and they have a lot of fun. When I read to them, I always get a kiss out of them at the end of the story. :) Such a cute and sweet story!
