There are so many things a little hand can do: like blow a kiss, say hello, or hold you tight.

This is the epitome of simple, innovative novelty, perfect for little kids. A die-cut hand on the front cover can be used throughout the book to help pat the puppy or give a high five! The shaped hand has a magnet embedded inside it to keep the cover neatly closed.

A Kiss for You! shows the reader just how capable a small hand can be, with illustrations by the beloved Caroline Jayne Church that are friendly, warm, and irresistible.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Readers can engage with this sunny board book by maneuvering a hand-shaped flap attached to the back cover, in seven scenes. Gently lifting the hand up and down makes a blonde girl softly pat a puppy. Elsewhere, a boy blows a kiss with the hand, and a brunette girl can play "peek-a-boo, I see you!" with readers. Though the hand may not stand up to more aggressive use, it's a fun, engaging gimmick. Ages 2–4. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The eye is drawn immediately to a hand that wraps from the back to the front of the book. The youngster is holding it over his mouth because a hand can be used to blow a kiss. A hand is also useful to wave hello, pat a puppy and give a "high five." Kids will be able to use the hand that is part of the book to complete these scenes. But hands can do much more such as holding things like as a teddy bear or playing games like peek-a-boo and waving goodbye. The hand attached to the book is sturdy and should hold up well and is magnetically fastened to the front of the book. The illustrations of boys and girls, toys, pets and parents are a good size and filled with good cheer. A clever book that should be a hit with toddlers. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
