My Thoughts:

This was the first book I read to my two daughters for the start of the new year, and what a great book to start with.  I just loved the illustrations that depicted all the different kinds of kisses.  This is a cute and fun book to read with your little ones, to share how not only you love them with all your kisses, but how all the creatures of the world show their love and affection to their offspring with their kisses. This easy-to-read book will surely become a family bedtime favorite, as it has already become one at our house.
