Review: Kiss Kiss Goodnight

Bedtime has never been so delightful! This beautiful board book of rhyming verse with its gorgeous padded cover is a great way to prepare young ones for sleep. Made up of a double spread for each animal, bunnies, kittens, lambs, bear cubs and chicks fill the pages with images of tenderness and love.

Its delicate expression of the mother and child relationship; the protection, caring and warmth that mother and child share, is deeply moving. Cuddles, kisses, wriggles and changing positions all come into play before the final settling down.

I found this a perfect book for pre-sleep preparation. Soothing and warm, it will relax both parent and child. Simply perfect!
