Overview

A mother kisses her way through a rhymed love letter to her child in a brand-new read-aloud from Stoo Hample that's bound to become a bedtime classic.

I will kiss you everywhere...
on your fingers, on your hair,
on a chair on a stair....
on the floor, in the air.
And I'll kiss your teddy bear.

As every parent of a small child knows, the funny little games that find a favorite place in the everyday forge a bond that lasts forever. Now the inimitable author of THE SILLY BOOK captures a universal ritual with such infectious charm and humor it can't help but start its own tradition. Whether in scenes farmiliar or outlandish, whether planted on hats or knees or freezy noses, the kisses just waiting to be shared in this exuberant picture book are guaranteed to delight little listeners (lots and lots and lots).

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A mother bunny catalogues all the opportunities a day offers for planting a smooch on her bright-eyed toddler. In one of the more humorous scenes, the mother says, "I'll kiss you when we're at the zoo,/ looking at a grumpy gnu," as the little bunny looks at the scowling horned critter with alarm. When bath time rolls around, the mother announces, "I will kiss you on your toes/ when you're naked with no clothes/ and your tiny tushy shows." The subject matter is a sure winner (what toddler isn't tickled by the prospects of a kissing cascade from Mom?) but Hample's execution falls short. Many of the rhymes feel half-baked or a tad overwrought ("I will kiss you on your hat,/ also when you're on a mat,/ tumbling like an acrobat"), and reflect more of a parent's perspective than a child's. The simplistic watercolor and ink illustrations, rendered in pallid oranges, pinks and grays unfortunately reflect little of the retro charm of his classic The Silly Book (originally published in 1961 and reissued last year). Here's hoping that with his next book, Hample finds his way back to inspired silliness. All ages. (Jan.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
"I will kiss you everywhere . . . on your fingers, on your hair, on a chair on a stair . . . on the floor, in the air. And I'll kiss your teddy bear." No matter the time of day, no matter the reason, a kiss, especially one from a mother to her little child, is always the perfect solution. And no one knows that better than Mother Bunny as she recites her litany of kisses to her little bunny child. A very simple story of a mother's unconditional affection for her child, little bunny's tale is told in rhyming text and accompanied by cute, at times silly, illustrations done in soft muted shades of pink, orange, and gray. The result is a quiet, peaceful book. This is a great bedtime story. Mothers will appreciate its calming effect on their children, while babies and toddlers will enjoy snuggling with mother as she reads to them and maybe plants a kiss or two along the way. Unless mother has been reading it to them since they were very little and they still enjoy the snuggle factor, older children may be bored. 2006, Candlewick Press, Ages 3 mo. to 3.

PreS-A mother rabbit kisses her way through this tale of parental love, sharing places and things she will kiss to amuse her child. "I'll kiss you when we're at the zoo,/looking at a grumpy gnu," she tells him. Some of the scenes are run-of-the-mill and others are outlandish. The story is sure to generate giggles as young listeners see the preposterous things the adult will do in the name of love: "I will kiss you on your toes/when you're naked with no clothes/and your tiny tushy shows." However, the rhyming text is at times forced. The watercolor-and-pencil drawings, all done in shades of peach, orange, pink, and gray, aren't as appealing or funny as those in the author's The Silly Book (Candlewick, 2004), but they do capture the loving and tender relationship between the mother and her bunny. An additional purchase.-Linda Zeilstra Sawyer, Skokie Public Library, IL Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
