A rhyming celebration of kisses of all kinds...And people are not the only kissers in these pictures: fish and birds kiss, and a baby shares kisses with a dog. “Because a day without kissing / has something missing.”
-Kirkus

Synopsis

One on the forehead, one on the nose, and one flying through the air…What would a day be like without kisses?

In musical language translated from Jennifer Couëlle's sublime French text, Kiss, Kiss celebrates the sweet gesture as a small child experiences it: in a parent's snug goodnight, a baby’s sticky smooch, and a healing touch on a scraped knee. Jacques Laplante's bright illustrations match liveliness with tenderness, delineating a charming love-filled world in deceptively childlike strokes.

Published in a compact hardcover format perfect for storytime snuggling, Kiss Kiss will be released in plenty of time for a very sweet Valentine's Day.
