I Kissed the Baby!


by Mary Murphy
Ages 0-5

How exciting! There's a new baby! As news of the little one travels through the forest, each animal boasts of feeding, singing to, and even kissing the new arrival. The story showcases the simple joy and contentment only a new baby can bring, and is perfect for those expecting a new brother or sister, and for those who are already enjoying their bundle of joy.

One mom on our staff says, "The mostly black and white illustrations are adorable and great for babies. This was one of the first books my twin babies took an interest in."
