KISSES KISSES BABY-O!

Author: Sheree Fitch

Illustrator: Hilda Rose

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Orca Books, © 2008

Material: board book

Summary: Simple sweet-sounding words in "baby" language help tell the story of getting ready for bed. This is a rhyming poem about a baby's day for newborns, infants, and toddlers.

Recommended Age: read together: 0 to 2; read yourself: 6 to 8

Interest Level: 0 to 3

Age of Child: Read with boy 1½-years old.

Young Reader Reaction: My son liked the book, but not any more than any other books.

Adult Reader Reaction: Although the book is billed for this age, I felt the story would be better geared for ages 6 to 12 months. I have other books I like more, but this was interesting enough to keep our child's attention.

Pros: The book has fun sounding words that would be wonderfully stimulating as a first book for an infant.

Cons: The book comprises mostly single words and made-up words (baby-o, huggle) that make it find for babies 6 to 12 months, but not for 1 year or older.

Borrow or Buy: Borrow. This is a nice book, but because the "reading window" is so small for, you are better off borrowing it.

Educational Themes: For a 6-month-old, this is a wonderfully stimulating book. Sounds and activities will engage them, and it is short enough to get through for kids with a short attention span.
