Pick of the Week: Mama's Kiss

Mama's Kiss by Jane Yolen, illustrations by Daniel Baxter (Handprint Books, an imprint of Chronicle Books, 2008)

In Mama's Kiss, Mama starts out throwing her daughter a kiss - but - surprise! - it misses her target! Mama throws another kiss, but this one lands on baby brother instead. Thus begins the journey of a traveling kiss that brings happiness to plenty of others before it finally comes full circle back to Mama's girl. This is a very sweet, happy book by the prolific author Jane Yolen. My guess is this one will end up being a favorite bedtime read-aloud for many.
