KIRKUS REVIEW

Nothing works better than a “kiss kiss” on a “boo-boo” in Katz’s newest entry celebrating the baby world.

Katz’s signature illustrations in bright, bold, and cheery colors depict six round-faced babies: three white, one black, one brown, and one Asian. And each has a boo-boo that needs to be taken care of. On the left-hand page, the black text on a colorful background indicates the nature of the boo-boo. On the right-hand page there is a recurring “Who will kiss baby’s boo-boo?” above the “injured” baby; toddlers can then look under the easy-to-lift full-page flap to find out who will provide the all-healing “kiss kiss.” Baby bumped his head; Daddy will kiss kiss. Baby thumped his elbow; puppy will kiss kiss. Baby pinched her finger; teddy bear will kiss kiss. Baby scraped his knee; Mommy will kiss kiss. Baby banged her toe; kitty cat will kiss kiss. After all those kisses baby is now all better! So simple and yet so spot on; encouraging wee ones to seek out stuffed toys for self-comfort is another plus. In all, it’s another warm and welcome addition to the bonding-and-cuddling-with-baby bookshelf.

After reading this, what grown-up will resist kissing the baby—boo-boo or not! (Board book. 6 mos.-2)
