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.
