This is just an ode to babies and kissable feet, isn't it? It's full of poetic descriptions of what the world would be like if kisses were something else - and how you could *see* how many there are, because parents don't just stop kissing and loving their kids.Beautiful artwork (well, of course, it's Alison Jay!), and a sweet story. I easily recommend it as a new-baby present, or a first birthday gift for your own kiddo.

simple, nice for a new baby book; the kind they get hooked on the melody of and it stays their favorite for a long time

My 28 month old daughter just loves this book. A simple and sweet story with lovely illustrations. We read this book night after night and have yet to tire of it. She especially gets a kick out of the pictures of the animals sledding or swimming in a lifevest.

Between illustrations and beautiful words, I was just as captivated by this sweet, poetic picture book, as was my little girl.
