All Kind of Kisses by Nancy Tafuri
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.
As readers follow mama bird flying around the farm, various animals show affection for their families. In her classic oversized style, Nancy Tafuri uses watercolors to warmly portray creatures that fascinate young children. Little ones will appreciate the large format and respond to the predictable repetition of the text. Slightly older children can interact further with the book by trying to find the blue bird on each full-bleed spread.
