Kisses for Daddy


Kisses for Daddy. Frances Watts. Illustrated by David Legge. 2010. April 2010. Simon & Schuster. 26 pages.

I really liked this one. I thought it was cute and playful. I loved the text. Here's how it starts off,
Baby Bear was grumbly. He didn't want to go to bed. He didn't want his bath, and he didn't want to kiss his mom and dad good night.
"Come on, grumbly bear," said his dad. "A big bear kiss for Mom, a big bear kiss for Dad, then bath and bed."
"No," said Baby Bear.
Is this night destined for a fit? Or can Daddy Bear turn things around? As the two prepare for bed, Daddy Bear keeps trying to sneak in kisses--giraffe kisses, koala kisses, crocodile kisses, bat kisses, tiger kisses, monkey kisses, etc.--but Baby Bear is stubborn yet. No kisses for Daddy. (Mom got a big bear kiss early on soon after the drama started.) Is there a happy ending in store? Will there be peace yet? Read and see for yourself in this little board book.
