KIRKUS REVIEW

Animal and human babies get smoochies in a saccharine, but snuggly, tucking-in rhyme. “How many kisses do you want tonight?” asks each animal parent as it cuddles with its baby. Little Bear asks for one, Little Duck asks for two, Little Cat for three, and so on. Little Girl “princess pink” asks her daddy for a hundred kisses, and Little Boy “brave knight” asks his mommy for a million. Sweet, softly colored watercolors set off each loving pair of parent and child in cozy bedtime scenes. Even giggly Little Spider (who gets eight kisses, one for each leg) is awfully lovable. Cutesy, but a good bedtime story. (Picture book. 2-4)
