Description

Bisous, Bisous, Bebe-O! is the french translation of the immensely popular board book, Kisses, Kisses, Baby-O!

Using rhythm and onomatopoeia, Sheree Fitch's bubbly text, expertly translated by Jo-Anne Elder, begins with baby waking, and follows through eating, bathing, playing, and finally sleeping. Repetition, rhythm, and active verbs create a lively story that can be read again and again.
