Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mama who believes you're never too old for magical stories of talking animals and imaginary worlds.
5.5 / 7.0

I think this book is darling and love that it promotes kisses. The only nit-picky thing is that I wish it didn’t refer to brother/sister kisses as “ew-yuck kisses” . . . but I get it. I improvise on that line to make it sweeter for younger readers that I don’t want believing that yet. :)

Mom of Boys
Mom of three little boys who love books about dragons, whangdoodles and magic.
5.5 / 7.0

This is a fun book about kisses. There are a lot of I love you books for children or babies coming from their parents. This book is a fun twist on how kisses say I love you, but also so much more from lots of different people. It will make you laugh and cheer you up and ends with a sweet feeling of wanting to share a little kindness.
