I wish I could give negative stars. It's hard for me to imagine a less appropriate book for kids to read, particularly in the light of recent events. This book sends the message that unwanted affection is a laughing matter, and that someone can keep offering unwanted affection after consent is denied and face no consequences. It teaches that the recipient of unwanted affection is the one responsible for stopping the action, not that no such unwanted affection should be offered in the first place ...more

Super cute read aloud featuring a pink poodle and a duck so overcome with love for her that he keeps kissing her despite her protests. I love the kiss button. Recommended for PreK-2.
Heh heh. If you've read Duck's Not Afraid of the Dark, you know that Ethan Long's crazy duck is great for readalouds. Though I don't always agree with book gimmicks in general (added bells and whistles), the lightswitch in that book is a winner, and so is this book's button that you press for a prolonged kissing sound. This would be hilarious to read with a little one who you could repeatedly smooch with great gusto. Would be interesting paired with Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus in terms of ...more

The kindergartners that I read this book to loved it. The juicy kisses both illustrated and auditory made the kids giggle. While there isn't much character development or plot here, it makes for a fun read and could lead to discussions on appropriate displays of affection and the importance of respecting other people's boundaries. But mostly the book is just silly and fun.

This book, complete with kissing noises, is a story about what happens when someone loves you a lot. After being covered in kisses, the pink poodle learns a lesson that she didn’t expect about being adored. This sweet story reminds us to appreciate those kisses… and to remember to give them back!
The best thing about this book is the the button on the top that when pushed, a long drawn out kissing noise is heard. This is the book I take when I go grocery shopping so that the little guy is amused. Of course, I get really strange looks whenever the little guy presses the button.
Valentines is about KISSING, so we offered this dramatic "sound button" book as our next story. One performer was the poodle and one performer was the duck. The children loved making loud, l o n g, sloppy kissing sounds on the kissing pages. Very fun for all.
