Picture Books - Kiss, Kiss!

Kiss, Kiss! by Margaret Wild and illustrated by Bridget Strevens-Marzo 2004

Although this book has been around awhile, it sure makes for a fun one on one lap book. The text invites the reader to make a number of entertaining sounds while following Baby Hippo through his morning adventures. While Baby Hippo is out and about following a dragonfly, he notices that the other little ones in the neighborhood are kissing their mamas good-bye. It is then he suddenly remembers what he forgot to do before leaving in such a hurry earlier that morning. The reader has a great opportunity to add a whimsical sense of urgency to Baby Hippo’s quick return to the waterhole in search of his mama. It is an enjoyable book to cuddle up with to your special little one and share funny kisses. Prefect for babies through pre-K, plus the illustrations are really cute, bright, and eye catching. It is just the right length for little ones, plus not too bad for the ever re-read syndrome of this age.
