What better gift for a new baby? The creator of I Kissed the Baby! celebrates animal moms and babies in an irresistible novelty book.
A giraffe kiss is very tall — just turn the page and see! Elephant kisses are long, of course, while tiny mice and bubbly fish have kisses all their own. Using a clever split-page format that makes for charming surprises, author-illustrator Mary Murphy shares a series of animal kisses that are sure to have babies and toddlers gurgling, giggling, smiling, and leaning over for their kisses, too.

Sure to inspire lots of cuddles and lip smacks.
This is an adorable compilation of animal parents and babies kissing, among them giraffes, mice, fish, even bees: “A bee kiss is fuzzy and buzzy....” Of course it is! The descriptions of the kisses will have kids giggling with delight: “An elephant kiss is long and toot-tooty...,” and the lift-the-flap layout and bright colors will appeal to young hands and eyes. A great Valentine’s Day read-aloud or everyday lap read
—School Library Journal
The chunky, childlike animals stand out against the predominantly white pages, while the flaps and sound effects contribute to a lively interactive experience.
Murphy’s trademark illustrations...sport the sweet, strong colors and design simplicity of decorated sugar cookies...The illustrations will carry well to a laptime or storytime crowd, but plenty of parents will find this equally enjoyable for a bedtime snuggle session as well.
