This book is very simple and the vocabulary would be great for earlier readers. Great for talking about animals and relationships between parents and children.

All sorts of animal moms and babies share kisses using typical animal sounds that will be familiar to babies and small children. The book concludes with "the best kiss of all" between a human mom and baby. A cute story, suitable for storytime for babies or toddlers. Nice, large double-page spread illustrations of each mom and baby animal pair. ( )

There are all kinds of kisses.
Cheep kisses... moo kisses... baa kisses... coo kisses...
But the best kiss of all is Mommy's kiss goodnight.

Mamas all across the farm cozy up with their little ones with cuddles and sweet affection. This lulling read-aloud, with animal sounds labeled on every page, will encourage young readers to join in as they are reminded how much they are cherished. (amazon).

A bluebird shows us around the farm to see how the different animals share smooches and snuggles with their little ones. Or should I say, to hear how the different animals share smooches? For each kind of kiss is accompanied by corresponding onomatopoeia, and the sound words are subtly drawn in the illustrations too. Each bright yet gentle picture, rendered in colored pencil, spreads across the width of the book in lavish detail, capturing the farm from a new perspective. One of my favorite Tafuri books, I notice something new every time I read it.

Will use this book this winter for my Hugs & Kisses Valentine storytime with the babies--it will go nicely with our Animal Kisses activity (eyelash butterfly kisses, nose-to-nose bunny kisses, bumping-forehead billy-goat kisses...). Would have loved a non-specific parent/caregiver ending instead of the best kiss being "Mommy's kiss good night." ( )

There are all kinds of kisses...
Cheep kisses. Moo kisses. Maaa kisses. Coo kisses...
But the best kiss of all...
Is Mommy's kiss goodnight. Sweet dreams, little one!

Mommies and babies aren't the only ones who enjoy sharing kisses. All throughout the farm, animal families snuggle up with their little ones, offering them warmth and love. Following a mama bird on her journey back to the nest to give her own baby some special cuddles, Nancy Tafuri uses beautiful, inviting illustration to share how different creatures, from peeping ducks to mooing cows, show their love and affection in very similar ways. A heartfelt homage to all of the wonderful kinds of kisses

Each barnyard animal has its favorite kind of kiss, but the best of all is a mother's goodnight kiss.
