Editorial Reviews

Puckering up to pigs is not an everyday affair, but in the hands of author Barney Saltzberg, it can be a very giggly experience. Animal Kisses also enables kids to snuggle up to pigs, cats, and other assorted creatures. Apparently, affection comes in many species.

My son loves touch and feel books. This one in particular is wonderful. He loves the scratchy cat tongue and the squeaky pig. Highly recommended!

I have been introducing my 6 month old to a number of different books from the time she was a few weeks old and this one has always been her favorite. The large/bright animals just captivated her from when she was just a few weeks old. At 6 months, I just need to show her the cover and she squeals with delight. I can't wait to get another 'Kisses' book for my little one. It's the only book that makes her smile and laugh.

This was one of the first books I bought for my daughter. I was disappointed it was not constructed in the typical board book fashion but it has held up better than some other books. My daughter loved looking at the bright colors when she was just a few months old. Now at 16 months she¿ll bring this book to us to read together and will look at it by herself. I would have given this book 5 stars but the sticky dog¿s tounge sticks the pages together and my daughter gets frustrated that she can¿t open the book to the dog page herself. Overall, this is a wonderful book.

Saltzberg has definitely created a ¿winner¿ in this his first book on Animal Kisses. From the outset, this book captures children¿s attention with vibrant colors and basic images, add to that, the appeal of differing textures and beginner's text for easy comprehension. ¿Do you like scratchy cat kisses?¿ The reader sees a large yellow cat on a red and violet background with its tongue sticking out, SANDPAPER - scratchy texture. Children find ¿touch and feel¿ books irresistible and love the expedition through tactile territory. Additional textures include: FELT ¿ velvety cows nose, STICKY ¿ sticky dog tongue, FUR ¿ fuzzy bear kisses, PLASTIC ¿ rubbery fish kisses, and VELVET ¿ squeaky pig kisses. Oh, Saltzberg earns BONUS points for placing a squeaker in the pigs nose! Terrific tactile tale!
