Overflowing with warmth, playful humour, energy and love, this gorgeous celebration of a baby's loveliness makes a wonderful gift. Oh my yummy one, my utterly lovely one! Look at you, so gorgeous! So opens a glorious song from parent crane to adored and adorable little cranelet...and with every turn of the page the song draws other species into the circle of love. This is a perfect read-aloud book that simply oozes affection and positivity and celebrates every person, every animal for who they are. The message of love is both personal (a parent's love for a child) and universal (a love for all living things), making the book seem both intimate and all-embracing. "I Kissed the Baby" sold over 22,000 copies in hardback, and over 46,000 in the board-book edition. Fresh, light artwork, large format and soothing, lyrical text really make this title special.
