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
The big elephant and the baby elephant on the cover of this board book with their trunks entwined gives a strong clue as to what may be inside. A variety of animals are shown expressing affection for their little ones. Mother cat nuzzles her kitten, a mother parrot hugs by nibbling her chick, a mother polar bear tickles her cub, a mother swan hugs her cygnet, as does the monkey and a human mother who snuggles with her toddler. The pictures all fill two pages and the animals are easy for kids to spot as is the affectionate caresses that each is giving. The added bonus is that young children will learn the proper names of all the baby animals depicted. A pleasant little book to snuggle up with just before bedtime. 2003, Chronicle Books, Ages 3 mo. to 3.

    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 "Daddy Kisses" and what a reasonable price!

    So cute

    My 15 month old is already a real animal lover -- so she really enjoys this book and "acting out" the mother/baby hugs (well so do I!). A quick, fun book.

    Great Bedtime Book

    I read this book to my 21 month old daughter every night. On each page, I give her hugs the way that the animal gives hugs. We also hug her baby dolls in the same way. This book has given us special times and memories that I will treasure forever.

    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.
