The Best Kind of Kiss
Written by Margaret Allum
Illustrated by Jonathan Bentley
Walker Books for Young Readers, 2011. Unpaged picture book.
This precious little girl just loves kisses! "Smelly-yelly brother kisses" and "rosy-cozy grandma kisses" and everything in between. It's hard to resist the cuteness of this picture book. The little girl has bright red hair and a little pink bow, and is puckered up on every page. Margaret Allum's writing is sweetly expressive, and Jonathan Bentley's illustrations perfectly complement the loving nature of the book. The Best Kind of Kiss would be a nice selection for Daddy-daughter story time, as her favorite is "a great big bristly-growly-daddy-kiss"!
