Trilingual, thick-stock paperback edition of bestselling baby book from author of Mabel Murple and There Were Monkeys in My Kitchen.
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 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.
This brand new trilingual edition features English, French, and Mi'kmaw text, and thick paper stock for durability.
