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,

    A great way to connect with your child at bedtime!

    I am so glad I bought this book. My husband & I started reading this book to my 2 year old daughter at bedtime. We would kiss her wherever the daddy animal kissed their child (ie. dadddy frog kisses his froglet on the eyes). About a month later, she wanted to kiss us while following along with the book. That was very touching. It's a great way to connect with your child after a long hectic day!

    Dad and son love Daddy Kisses

    I ordered this book for a Christmas present. My husband and our son love to sit together as Daddy reads the book and kisses our son like each of the animals in the book and like the daddy at the end of the story. Our son actually gets the book and climbs into my husband's lap for Daddy to read it to him. They both really enjoy sharing this book together. I would recommend it for a birthday present, Father's Day present or any holiday present.

    A book after my own heart

    This book was given to my son by his mom for me to read to him - and we love it! All about daddies and their kids, using animals as characters.

    Daddy Kisses

    This book was a great gift for my son-in-law on his first Father's Day. It's well written and illustrated but not too mushy for a he-man to read to his son.

    A treasure

    Sturdy board-book construction. Lovely images. Educational in the sense that it teaches the child about animal babies and parents. And a marvelous way of helping your child learn that there are many beautiful ways of showing love! Both our youngest grandson and our newest niece will be receiving this as a Christmas gift!<BR/><BR/>Great companion to "Mommy Hugs" and what a reasonable price!

    A New Classic

    This book has quickly become a major part of our bedtime routine. My daughter loves it so much that she'll fly through the pages just to get to that last page when she knows she's going to get smothered in kisses by her daddy. The anticipation of each animal's kisses has helped reinforce different body parts as well. Great book!

    A delight for dads AND moms!

    What a wonderful book. My 22 month old really enjoys looking at the pictures and laughing at how her dad & I kiss her in the same spots the other dads in the book kiss their babies (animals and then a person). A really nice book to wind down the day.

    A great book!

    I wanted a book for my husband to read to our little girl. This book is great and you can make it more interactive by acting out the reading.

    Good for the very young child

    This a simple board book. My grandson enjoys it. It's nice that it centers on affection from the father. Animal illustrations are colorful. The format is quite small. It may even be good for the small hands of a two year old.

    Bonding At Its Best

    Daddies can be tender, too. This is an adorable book showing the love father's have for their youngsters. A precious story that from a rarely seen perspective. We all could learn something here, if we're not careful.

    Daddy Kisses great for 18-month-old

    I bought this for my great-niece and thoroughly enjoyed reading it over and over to her. She touched all the kiss 'locations' as we read, and then especially loved being hugged and kissed at the end. Delightful story.

    I read Daddy Kisses and Mommy Hugs to my 1 year old son in the same sitting. He loves both of them. The illustrations and colorful and capture the attention. I wish the actual overall size of the book was a little bigger, but great for travel.
