Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
New titles arrive in board book editions just right for small hands. Mommy Hugs and Daddy Kisses, by Anne Gutman and Georg Hallensleben (the team behind the Gaspard and Lisa books), demonstrate the affection between parents and their offspring with a variety of snuggling animals in simple, impressionistic paintings. In Hugs, "Mommy polar bear hugs her cub with a tickle"; in Kisses, "Daddy giraffe gives his calf a kiss on the neck," while "Daddy frog gives his froglet a kiss on the eyes." Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
In this board book, little ones are presented with a variety of animal dads who kiss their little ones in a variety of ways. A wolf dad kisses his pup on the nose, a giraffe daddy kisses his baby's long neck while the squirrel kisses his baby's paw. While these may not be actual facts in most cases, since mothers seem to do the child rearing of most animals in the wild, the concluding spread is the important one. The human dad kisses his son all over. It is a quiet reassuring book and nice to have a Dad as the main character. 2003, Chronicle,
