A Kiss Like This

illus. by author. 32p. Candlewick. Dec. 2012. Tr $12.99. ISBN 978-0-7636-61823.
K-Gr 1—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.—Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, Pittsburgh, PA
