Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Animal Kisses:
"Sturdy enough to withstand an onslaught of toddler kisses."--Chicago Tribune
"Babies love to kiss . . . So they'll love this colorful book."--Baby Talk
Children's Literature
Saltzberg has created a delightful book full of colorful cartoonish animals ready to be caressed by curious toddlers. Each animal's face has a tactile inset of sandpaper, fuzzy fabric, velveteen, or plastic—depending on what sort of animal it is. The insets really are a joy to touch, particularly the pig's nose, which squeaks when pressed. Toddlers will love looking into the animals' big expressive faces while touching their tongues, lips, or muzzles. The text reinforces the importance of touching each animal by repeatedly asking the child which kind of kiss she prefers and then describing the kind of kiss offered on that page. This book will be a pleasure to read with a child, or a tactile and visual solitary pleasure for a child who cannot yet read to himself. Of course, a shared reading would be more fun since its natural conclusion is for the child to be showered with kisses. The Spanish is clear and in large type, so eventually children may be able to pick out the repeated words on their own. 2004 (orig. 2000), Red Wagon Books/Harcourt, Ages 6 mo. to 3.
