Pucker up for an orderly (but still delightful) display of the many types of kisses one might find in a barnyard. Each double-page spread is filled with a pleasingly plump parent representing a variety of species bestowing his or her own special brand of loving smacker upon the offspring. The text begins, “Little ones love kisses,” before moving on to specifics: “Little Chick loves Cluck kisses. Little Calf loves Mooo kisses. Little Kid loves Maaa kisses.” The closing scene features a human mother embracing and kissing her young child. Tafuri’s artwork radiates gentleness: her choice of soft colors, the placement of the animals against the pastoral background, their comfortable body language, and in the lovingly given and received kisses themselves. Kids will be hard pressed not to join in. For other kiss-fests, see Ann Whitford Paul’s If Animals Kissed Goodnight (2008) and Joanne Ryder’s Won’t You Be My Kissaroo? (2004). Preschool-Kindergarten. --Randall Enos
* "Many bedtime books featuring animal sound exist, but few are executed with such skill; this one has the potential to become a classic."―Kirkus

I feel that having respect for animals and a strong desire to avoid hurting them contributes to a less ruthless and more compassionate world.
