Review: Kisses in Your Heart

A beautiful tale about love and family, Kisses in your Heart will warm your insides and have kids feelings all kinds of special as you read it to them.

The story explores a parent's love and how kisses carry the magic of comfort. No matter where you go, a kiss from a loved one stays with you. 

Mum, she gently makes a start, placing kisses on my heart.

This is a beautiful and gentle story about love. It shows children that loved ones are never gone, even when they are not right by your side. 

I love how the story has so much meaning in so few words. Depending on the reader and their circumstances and life experiences, it provides a message of support for so many different situations: kids afraid of the dark, kids nervous about going to school or kids who have lost a loved one. 

The message is the same. Your loved ones never leave you. Their kisses — their love — stay with you wherever you go. 

I close my eyes, and always know, these kisses follow where I go.

With gorgeous illustrations in beautiful soft colours and flowing rhyming text, this picture book is a giant hug. A beautiful story and lovely reminder to kids that they are always loved.
