Review: Mummy's Kisses

No one needs an excuse for Mummy kisses, but it's still nice to hear them.

There's Mummy kisses for the morning. There's Mummy kisses when it's time for adventure. There's some for having fun, and for learning a trick or two. There's even Mummy kisses for just having a go, for knowing it's okay to cry and because the day has gone and it's time to rest a weary head.

Baby echidna has a full day exploring, playing, learning and taking a chance, with Mummy not too far behind, keeping one watchful eye. No matter what he needs or where he goes, he can rely on his mother's love.

Author Clark has penned a sweet rhyming tale, gorgeously illustrated with the most divine watercoloury images on cream pages.

Showcasing our native fauna and flora around a creek bed (including fluffy duckling and a platypus), these textured, truly adorable illustrations are a perfect complement to a loving mother/child tale. Loving the gold embossing on the front cover, too.
