Hugs and Kisses

by Christopher Loupy, Eve Tharlet, J. Alison James (translator)

North South Books 2006

Ages: Birth to 3

Topic: Gifts for the New Baby

This warm story is about a puppy named Hugs who sets out one morning to get a kiss from everyone he meets. He finds out that a pig's kiss is a little scratchy and muddy, a duck's kiss is hard and damp and a horse's kiss is damp and sticky, but when he returns home, he finds that his mother's kiss is best of all.

Translated from the French, this little book will become a favorite.
