“Mommy’s Best Kisses” is an adorable board book filled with all different types of animal mothers and their babies.  On each page the mother is kissing her baby in a different spot.  For instance, the giraffe kisses her baby on the neck, the pig kisses her baby on the tummy, and the camel kisses her baby on the eyes.

Cayden:  Pointing to the penguins inside the front cover:  “They are kissing each other because they love each other.”

Mom:  “What was your favorite page?”

Cayden:  “The elephant kissing her baby on the nose.  Then I liked the ostrich kissing her baby on his knees!”

Parent’s comments:
While my children did not have a lot of comments on this book they really did enjoy it.  They had fun finding all of the body parts on themselves that were being kissed in the book, especially their belly buttons!

Each page starts with “I kiss” and every time I read that part Max made the kissing noise with his mouth.  After we read through the book once Cayden wanted to go back through and name all of the animals for us.  The illustrations and the text are very sweet making “Mommy’s Best Kisses” a wonderful bedtime story!
