I just got a hold of the new children’s book, “Plant a Kiss,” by Amy-Krouse-Rosenthal (author) and Peter H. Reynolds (illustrator) and it is a treat. It would make a great Valentine’s Day present.
It’s the tale of a little girl, Little Miss, who literally plants a kiss in the ground. She cares for the kiss by watering it, giving it sunshine and waiting for it to grow. It grows into a beautiful, sparkly wave of mist that all the kids want.
Little Miss is kind and shares the kiss with her friends, until it’s all gone. At the end, she is rewarded at the original planting spot where she finds the kiss has regrown — even bigger!
This book is wonderfully illustrated and drew both of my children in. My two-year-old loved the sparely kiss as it grew. It’s raised and shiny on the pages and you can feel it to the touch. I love this book and am not going to mind if I end up having to read it over and over and over again.
Here’s a link to a video that showcases the book’s illustrations and clever storyline.
