Anyway, that piece of Sunhi household trivia aside, this book is a treasure. It's the story of a little baby boy bear who must get ready to go to sleep and the daddy who helps him by giving him a bath and putting him to bed. During each step of the process, his daddy asks for a certain type of kiss such as a koala kiss or a giraffe kiss, and describes the type of kisses each animal gives. The baby bear rejects each request, until the end in which he gives his daddy a big bear kiss.
The art is adorable and hidden in each scene are animal pictures that you could easily point out to your child. For instance, while there is an obvious koala picture on the koala page, a railing post and wallpaper make the silhouette of a koala head, as well. On the bat kiss page, a washcloth shadow gives the silhouette of a bat. It actually took me three readings of the book to realize this!
The best part for my son is the fun way baby bear rejects the kisses. He often imitates it when we read this story, and at the end of the book, kisses are given all around.
This is a great book for gifts for a father or for father's to read to their children.
