I Kissed the Baby!
Candlewick Press, 2004 - Juvenile Fiction - 24 pages
Finally -- the perfect first book for baby is available in board!
"I saw the baby!
Did you see the baby?"
"Yes! I saw the baby, the teeny weeny thing."
It's so exciting! News of the baby is buzzing from animal to animal, with each one -- fish, bird, squirrel, insect, frog -- boasting of seeing, feeding, singing to, tickling, and kissing the tiny little thing. With bold, graphic black-and-white illustrations, Mary Murphy's simple, singsong story captures the giddy commotion that only a baby can bring.
"An animal cast so elated that they seem on the verge of jumping into readers' laps. . . . The high-contrast pictures and exclamatory text are guaranteed eye and ear magnets for the littlest ones." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)
