"Babies are kissed by their grown-ups, from head to toe..Almost half of the cute and bubbly images depict families of color...This title is bound to encourage lots of bonding."
"A compilation of engaging photographs showing babies of families from a variety of cultural backgrounds receiving 'lots of kisses' from loving parents...Bound to be a book to read over and over again to kiss away even the more serious of boo boos."
"Using rhythmic words, Crozier encourages parents to cover their babies with kisses...The book is beautiful...Pastel, patterned backgrounds appear behind the text. The book includes children and adults from different racial backgrounds and a variety of ages. The photographs include pictures of just mom (or dad) and baby, a married man and woman with a baby (the wedding ring is obvious), and a woman (with no wedding ring) and a baby...Recommended."
