Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"Blow a kiss and let it go, / You never know how love will grow--" So begins Love and Kisses, a small, square book that happily illustrates the domino effect of kisses. Kiss your cat, and your cat may kiss a cow, "the cow may kiss a giggling goose, / the goose, a fish--somehow!" Melissa Sweet's soft, sketchy watercolors add humor and warmth to this smooch-saturated book, spreading the message that a little love goes a long way, and ultimately comes back to you. (Ages 4 to 8) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Sarah Wilson's board book, Love and Kisses, charts the travels of love unleashed: "Blow a kiss and let it go/ You never know/ how love will grow!" Melissa Sweet's watercolor and cut-paper collage hearts wend their way through the pages, sending the smooch from cat to cow to "giggling goose" and, eventually, back to "you-know-who."

I bought this for my three-year-old when she was just a baby, and we've both loved it ever since. The deeper meaning is lost on an infant and toddler, but the sweet, playful storyline and pictures are not. This one should be part of every child's book collection.

Format: Paperback
Our daughter cut her teeth on this book! (-Really, there are tiny teeth marks all along the edges.) So, how could we ever discard such a beloved treasure? Our 'baby' is 5 now, and we STILL love to read this book together at bedtime. She has long memorized the words and can read the book without the book even being present.

Boasting colorful and fun illustrations, the message in this book is: what you give out comes back to you! It begins: 'Blow a kiss and let it go, you never know how love will grow' -the chain reaction of love and kisses get passed along to several animals (a goose, a fish, a fox, a cow and more)and ends up right back where it began, with the girl.

Whenever our daughter catches us saying 'You never know' in our everday conversations, she finishes with 'How love will grow!'

The book is pretty short, so it's good for when you and your little one are too tired to go through 'Green Eggs & Ham.' All you page skippers out there know what I'm talking about!

This book would make a great gift for someone expecting, or for a toddler's birthday. This is a favorite bedtime book in our home!

I have a 4yr old and 2.5yr old and this book is one that endures they still love hearing it over and over even though both of them have parts of it memorized (my 4yr old has memorized the whole book).

My 18 month old just loves this book. As we read along about each animal sharing a kiss we make the noise each animal would make and blow a kiss. We are doing just what the book teachs - Blow A Kiss and Let It Go -- You Never Know How Love Will Grow!

My 8 1/2 month old daughter loves this book! I have been reading it to her everyday since she was about 3 months old. Whenever I start the story she gives me big smiles! The words have a nice rhythm and the word choice makes reading this book fun.
