All Kinds of Kisses by Nancy Tafuri. “Little ones love kisses,” declares the first page of this lovely and loving book. Set on a farm, each watercolor-and-pencil page shows a baby animal and its parent, and describes what kind of kisses each little one loves to get: Little chick loves “Cheep” kisses; little calf loves “Mooo” kisses, etc. The richly detailed illustrations invite close study; observant readers will notice that one full day passes between the sunrise greeted with a rooster’s crow, and the moonrise on the final page where a human mother kisses her sleeping toddler. A bluebird appears somewhere on each page, many previously-featured animals re-appear in the background, and the farmer is busy with chores in the distance. This sweet and simple book is perfect to share with your little one just before a kiss good-night. See this book listed in our catalog
