“A Kiss Like This” by Mary Murphy Review & Giveaway!!!

logo (3)

I cannot wait for spring and you will probably hear me mention that a dozen times at least before it arrives.  This Arctic blast we are experiencing can go back to the Arctic from which it came with bells on it!  I love looking ahead in the winter, love scheduling appointments in December for April at the doctor’s office but hate doing that in the Summer when they are scheduling for December!

Anyway, so looking ahead to the next month we have Valentine’s Day coming up and I just shared an adorable book with my little ones.  A Kiss Like This by Mary Murphy is all about how Mama and child animals express their love in a kiss.  It can be a fuzzy buzzy kiss like the bumble bees share or a fizzy bubbly kiss of the fish.  The unique way the pages are split and allow little hands to turn them and see the display of affection is so sweet.  If you are looking for a special book to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your little one, this book even saves the last kiss for you and your special Valentine.


A giraffe kiss is very tall — just turn the page and see! Elephant kisses are long, of course, while tiny mice and bubbly fish have kisses all their own. Using a clever split-page format that makes for charming surprises, author-illustrator Mary Murphy shares a series of animal kisses that are sure to have babies and toddlers gurgling, giggling, smiling, and leaning over for their kisses, too.

What better gift for a new baby? The creator of I KISSED THE BABY! celebrates animal moms and babies in an irresistible novelty book.
