Description

Kisses Kisses Baby-O! is a story for newborns told from the point of view of a parent or caregiver, but with high interaction with baby's world and tuned to events in baby's day.
Beloved Canadian children's author Sheree Fitch delivers what she's famous for: fun, intelligent, participatory text that is a joy to read. Using rhythm and onomatopoeia, Sheree's bubbly text 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.
Heart-warming illustrations by HildaRose combine realism and a whimsical, artistic style, while paying close attention to the needs of newborn readers, including such elements as: stimulating visuals, patterns, baby faces, cultural diversity and interaction with others. And babies will drool over the small, easy to hold format!

Kisses Kisses Baby-O!

Nova Scotia’s Nimbus Publishing have produced the first Nova Scotia board book for babies, Kisses Kisses Baby-O! written by award-winning author and literacy advocate Sheree Fitch. The strength of this book is the lyrical language, which weaves words through a baby’s day: “Eyes blink open/sun winks in/hello baby!/day begins kisses kisses/head to toe/kisses kisses/baby-O.” This book is a joy to read aloud with bounce and rhythm and lipslippery language like “slurpy burpy and snuggle huggle” that will tickle the tongue. Hilda Rose’s illustrations of touching, kissing and cuddling model loving interactions between family and baby.

Kisses Kisses Baby-O!

Rhythmic verse chronicles a day in the life of a baby. Realistic, muted artwork shows different babies engaged in various activities (waking, eating, bathing, playing, sleeping). This book is also available in French as Bisous, Bisous Bébé Ô!
