There are many ways to say I love you to a child, and no way is sweeter than with a kiss. Every mother knows small hands, a plump tummy, tiny fingers, and wiggling toes all beg to be kissed time and time again.
Margaret Anastas's loving rhyme and Susan Winter's gentle illustrations of animal mamas and their adorable babies will make this a family favorite.

Margaret Anastas is the coauthor of the New York Times best-seller Thanksgiving is For Giving Thanks. She has worked in children's books for many years and lives in Pelham, New York, with her husband, Greg, and their two children, Owen and Zoe.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.
