Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
A little hippo almost forgets kisses for Mama in this hearteningly adorable, Africa-set picture book from Margaret Wild and Bridget Strevens-Marzo.

When Baby Hippo hurries off to play, he doesn't remember to give Mama a kiss. But as he makes his way through the "squelchy, squelchy mud," around the "bumpy, bumpy rocks," up the "mossy, mossy bank," and other places, Baby Hippo hears many other babies kissing their mamas! After spotting elephants, gorillas, and zebras, to name a few animals, he finally remembers what he forgot and shuffles back home, where Mama is waiting for him in the "deep, deep water."

Simple and sweet, with repetitive phrases to keep little ones engaged, Wild and Strevens-Marzo's read is a pure, animal-packed treat. The large, bright illustrations are as warm as the African savanna, making a tender winner that also teaches about fauna, topography, and especially the bond between parent and child. Kisses from your child won't stop coming with this cutie close at heart. Matt Warner

Publishers Weekly
Another paean to mother-child love, Kiss Kiss! by Margaret Wild, illus. by Bridget Strevens-Marzo, makes a smooth transition to a mini-book format. Baby Hippo goes off to play without giving his mama a kiss, and when he sees all his animal friends with their parents, he feels something's missing and heads home. Ages 3-6. (Dec.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Baby Hippo was in such a hurry to go play that he forgot to do something very important. He went through the "squelchy, squelchy mud," over "bumpy, bumpy rocks," "up the mossy, mossy bank," "through the long, long grass," and "under the leafy, leafy trees." At each of these places he heard the same sound, and finally realized that he had forgotten to do something. Baby Hippo retraced his steps back to his mother who was in the "deep, deep water" to kiss her. This simple story rises above the ordinary with these child-oriented descriptive phrases. The illustrator's baby hippo is a friendly, round little fellow. At each location are the appropriate mother and baby animals: elephants, rhinos, lions, zebras, and chimpanzees created in colors and clean lines that draw the eye to the page. Young children will enjoy the animal identification as well as the feelings of security as Baby Hippo happily leaves his mother and then returns for that very important kiss. This is a good selection for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, or a jungle-themed story time. 2004, Simon & Schuster, Ages 3 to 6.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Baby Hippo forgets to kiss his mama good-bye before he goes off to play. As he walks through the jungle, he sees other animal babies kissing their mothers, so he returns home and makes amends. The large, lushly detailed paintings feature bright backgrounds and a cast of appealing creatures, including lions, elephants, and zebras, which will be easily identified by young listeners. With a rounded body, a slight curl to his stubby tail, perky cartoon-style eyes, and a pink blush on his cheeks, Baby Hippo is endearing. The brief, repetitive text and artwork are well suited to a crowd, making this a natural for lap-sit programs. While there are many books about parent-child love and separation, the accessibility of this one to the very young, ESL families, and even beginning readers should earn Kiss Kiss! a place on library shelves.-Faith Brautigam, Gail Borden Public Library, Elgin, IL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Post-toddlers with a tendency to rush off without attending to basic necessities may benefit from this simply told episode. Only after seeing other youngsters-an elephant, a baby rhino, a lion cub, a zebralet, and a young chimp-bussing their parents does Baby Hippo realize that he neglected to kiss his mother before lumbering off to play. Beginning and ending at a river so deeply green that Mama Hippo can pull off a brief game of hide-and-seek just by submerging, Strevens-Marzo places an array of smiling, familiar African animals into brightly colored natural settings. Baby Hippo rushes back to Mama to rectify his mistake, and is last seen blissfully bumping noses with her. Rare is the lapsitter who won't want to do likewise after sharing this. (Picture book. 3-5)

    Printing

    I received this book and it has two duplicate pages and two missing pages; obvious printing error. I can't use it.

    Book is really cute, though.
