A cute book, for any age . . . Dec 23, 2001
I gave this book to my boyfriend as a Valentines Day present ;) We're both 19, but it was still a very cute gift. I added little comments and when we're stressed out with school, sometimes we'll pull it out and read it to each other. So I'm sure it's a great book for children, but when approached with the right attitude, it's also a cute book for grown-ups! :)
Which is YOUR favorite kind of kiss? May 1, 2000
This is a really cute book, and my kids enjoyed the pictures as much as they did having me demonstrate many of the kisses on them. Around our house, we share many kisses, and we especially enjoy the "tummy kisses," which, like author Dave Ross, we also call "raspberry kisses." These are normally dispensed with PERMISSION here, however, since both my husband and I remember being tickled and kissed mercilessly by our uncles when we were children. (I was fairly traumatized by a couple of uncles who liked to "whisker" my face, which is a barbaric custom in which an older male relative rubs his three-day-old growth of facial hair on a child's face and neck until the child bleeds--or until she screams loudly enough that another older relative comes to her rescue! Girls treated in this fashion often grow up to be afraid of men with beards and/or mustaches.)
I liked the charming pastel drawings, the variety of animals depicted, and the unusual type-style in which the book is set. The lettering is still a version of print (but not cursive), and gives older readers a chance to practice reading a different style of type-set than they're used to seeing in their school textbooks. I think this is an important consideration, since kids are expected to read and write in print and cursive styles--and to decipher their teacher's often difficult-to-read printing and handwriting!
DIFFERENT Mar 26, 2000
This book was beyond my expectations. I found it to be a simple way of teaching young children about the different types of kisses there are. My 5 year old was totally thrilled on reading about all these different kisses.
