Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
What better way to learn how to count than by adding up kisses? Pairing repetition with simple couplets, May takes readers up to the number 10 in this padded book with cardboard pages: “One kiss for baby/ on baby’s nose/ Two kisses for baby/ tickling toes.” Ainslie offers delicately outlined images that show a small girl in a blue dress cavorting with a trio of stuffed animals; as the numbers increase, so do the number of childlike pink and red hearts on each spread, helping drive home the concept. Up to age 3. (Aug.)
Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
Colorful hearts stand for kisses and match the number featured on the double spreads dedicated to each number from one to ten. A charming little girl wearing red and white knee-socks spends the day playing with her stuffed-animal friends. While there are some rhymes and repeated rhythms, this is not a poetry book. The numbers are clearly displayed (in frames of various shapes, such as ovals, circles, and rectangles) and the number of hearts matches the numerals but other numbers of items appear randomly on each page. Once could wish that the "little one" counting sheep on the number nine page could have been counting nine sheep; but the device here is the counting of hearts—which do represent the actual number being presented. The whimsical illustrations are displayed on clean backgrounds, leaving enough white space for young eyes to focus on the actions of each page. Adults sharing this board book with little ones will want to employ all of the action verbs depicted: tickling, giggling, splashing, singing, etc. The author's words are echoed in the illustrations but there are also plenty of opportunities for discussion as to what each of the animals are doing. The white rabbit seems to love to dance and the teddy bear is a willing partner. The little one of the story is a spot-eyed puppy who is tucked into bed on the very last page—an idea that would make this a good selection for bedtime reading. Of course, it would make a sweet little Valentine's Day gift. Reviewer: Sheilah Egan
