A mother kisses her way through a rhymed love letter to her child in a brand-new read-aloud from Stoo Hample that's bound to become a bedtime classic.

I will kiss you everywhere...
on your fingers, on your hair,
on a chair on a stair....
on the floor, in the air.
And I'll kiss your teddy bear.

As every parent of a small child knows, the funny little games that find a favorite place in the everyday forge a bond that lasts forever. Now the inimitable author of THE SILLY BOOK captures a universal ritual with such infectious charm and humor it can't help but start its own tradition. Whether in scenes farmiliar or outlandish, whether planted on hats or knees or freezy noses, the kisses just waiting to be shared in this exuberant picture book are guaranteed to delight little listeners (lots and lots and lots).
