Leslie Patricelli is back with her one-haired wonder returning to this time share the love. “Huggy Kissy” is a wonderful children’s book and one of mine and my 6-month daughters’ new favorite. The book makes you want to smother your children with love and affection and I am A-Ok with that! I call this book a must-read for all parents to share with their children. It is being released in perfect time for stocking stuffers! Hint-Hint!
Premise: When you’re an adorable bald baby, your family finds lots of ways to show you how much they love you: Mommy lifts you uppy, Daddy kisses you on the tummy, and everyone wants to snuggle. What’s not to love? With comedy and warmth, Leslie Patricelli offers a universal tribute to love and affection in a board book full of instant appeal for little valentines everywhere.
Author/Illutrator, Leslie Patricelli has released many board books based around this character and honestly I cannot get enough of them. Each one is better and cuter than the next. After reviewing, Patricelli’s Christmas entry “Fa La La”, I was excited to see what she has planned next and here it is already with “Huggy Kissy”. I say, “Keep them coming Leslie!” I can’t wait to see what is planned next.
