What's your favorite kiss of the day? In this new padded board book edition, little ones and their parents cherish each happy moment of the day through a series of fun, playful kisses -- from sun-filled morning kisses to cozy bedtime kisses and more!

From sticky breakfast kisses to playful “gotcha” kisses to cozy bedtime kisses, each kiss celebrates a happy moment of the day. And when one little lamb’s mama and friends surprise him, all those silly, slippery, snuggly kisses make a special day even more memorable. Acclaimed author Joanne Ryder and Caldecott honoree Melissa Sweet have together created an exuberant celebration of children and parents—and of all the cherished kissable moments between them. Young readers will enjoy this padded board book edition that is especially snuggly!
