Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-"I kiss your small hands/as you reach for my face,/I kiss your sweet neck-/it's my favorite place." So starts this lovely book as soft, gentle, meticulous illustrations in pastel corals, blues, and tans depict animal mothers tenderly kissing their babies. The last pictures are of a human mother and her toddler reading a book and saying good night with a kiss. The text is rhythmic and beautifully descriptive, listing places to be kissed that can apply to human as well as animal babies. Winter's art is reminiscent of Susan Jeffers's work and, with the poetic text, makes a special bedtime book for one-on-one sharing.

My husband bought this book for me on Mother's Day and it was the best gift ever. I and my 10 month old daughter love it! It's simple, sweet, and tender. The rhymes are perfect for little ears and the illustrations of the animals are beautiful. Mommies - you won't be disappointed. This is sure to be a classic. I just wish they had a boardbook version!

Our 14 month old daughter absolutely loves this book! She asks to have it read to her at least 5 times per day. In fact, this book has really helped us teach her how to say "please." Each page has just the right amount of text on it for a young child and the illustrations are beautiful. This book is destined to become a classic!

The illustrations are absolutely beautiful - even my young daughters were quick to recognize the beauty in the pictures, especially the humans in the book. Its really lovely! Nice bedtime book, especially nice as a gift for first time moms. If your kids love animals, they'll love having this book read to them.

I purchased this book for my Daughter and Granddaughter for Christmas when Granddaughter was 2 months old. My daughter began reading it to her then. Now she picks this book up as a favorite. The pictures of the baby animals being kissed by their Mothers is very sweet. I ordered 2 more of these books last month through Amazon, to give to my next 2 Grand children that are soon to be here. I highly recommend for lovers of animals and babies.

It is time to go to bed, but first, you need something special: Mommy's kisses. Good mommies of all species kiss their little ones in all the places they need kissed. Toes, fingers, noses, and tummies, too. They all need kissed, just like you.

With loving, gentle finesse, Anastas and Winter share the promise of the unconditional love a mommy has for her small child. Soft illustrations show animal mothers kissing their babies in delightful ways.

In addition to being a good for bedtime, this book offers a wonderful opportunity for parent-child interaction. The child can be asked to name the animals, find the body parts, and more. But most of all, this is a perfect book to read during a good, old-fashioned snuggle.

MOMMY'S BEST KISSES by Margaret Anastas, illustrated by Susan Winter (Harper Collins 2003 "CHILDREN NEED LOTS OF KISSES. AND MOMMIES KISS THEM JUST RIGHT") I received this book as a gift to take to my local library from the regional library board. The little boy on the cover picture looked so much like one I had just taken of my great grandson, I sent it to him instead and then purchased a replacement to take to the library. It was dedicated in his honor. It is simply a beautiful book and my granddaughter kisses him just like the mother in the book does!

Susan Winter's illustrations are beautiful. The pictures are of baby animals that are getting kisses from their mothers' on different body parts. My 3yr old girl still likes this book, and it was one of the first books read to her when she was a baby. The book also has a good flow of rhyming. "I kiss your small hands as you reach for my face, I kiss your sweet neck, it's my favorite place. I kiss your plump tummy, as round as can be, I kiss your belly button as you grin up at me." That is just a few parts of the book. Highly reccommend for all ages 0-4.

Just found it at the library, have been reading it to my 2 yr old son, and am seriously considering buying. It's well-written (but short enough that he can pay attention), sweet, it teaches them something (he asks me the animals he doesn't know), and the illustrations are well done, too. Oddly, that's hard-to-find combination. When my kids haven't worn me out completely, I try to imitate the book, or just tickle the mentioned spot (knee, neck) and my son giggles. Win, win.
