Daddy Kisses follows multiple fathers as they give their children kisses. It starts off with animals such as: a bear, a bunny, and a lion. This book shows the love and affection that we get from our parents. It ends with a little boy getting kisses all over from his dad. I think this book is a quick and easy read for kids that are very young. It is short enough to keep their attention but still has a sweet lesson behind it. It teaches kids from a young age that we all love the same, even if they ...more

How different animal fathers kiss their young, ending with a human (diverse) father and child. I've been gathering a list of children's book without a mother figure, this is one of them.

My Review: I adore this book, the illustrations are cute but the best part is the kissing. Daddy animals kiss their babies on various body parts like head, neck, paws, etc. Its fun to plant a kiss on the same body

I really enjoy this book. It's sweet and simple, but can be a lot of fun with you and your little one. Each daddy gives his "pup", "kid", or "cub" a kiss on a different body part. (i.e. head, paw, neck) My husband kisses our daughter while we read and we get a lot of giggles. The book is great for talking about different types of animals and what baby animals are called. Very simples literature, and not a deep story.

The book uses different animals to go through different daddy kisses. The pictures are gorgeously done. It starts with Daddy wolf gives his pup a kiss on the nose. Then Daddy giraffe gives his calf a kiss on the neck. It ends with my daddy kiss me all over! I think it is a sweet book for a dad and baby to read together. It is a good way for them to develop a bond and use literature to connect in a physical and emotional way.

I brought this one home for Mike to read with Natalie, but she hasn't been receptive to it in the evenings. The illustrations are of various animals giving their babies kisses. It makes a great book for dads to read and act out with their children. (Moms and other relatives could cheat and say Mommy or whoever instead of Daddy until the kids are old enough to read).

We read this almost every night and Mommy gives me kisses in the same places the animals give their babies. I especially love the the giraffe neck kiss because it tickles, and the frog eye kiss. And I like to say "paw" when I put up my hand for the squirrel kiss.

Why did I read this you ask? I've had to attend many a baby shower and visit many new little babies over the past year----I spent ALOT of time in the children's area at the local bookstore and thought these books as well as the touch-art books were great for babies! Too cute!

All the daddy animals kiss their babies on different body parts. A baby squirrel is a "pup". The illustrations are really darling. My 2yo read this and kissed me before turning each page. So great!!!

The quintessential before book read for daddy's to read to their children. My daughter picks this book to me read to her constantly and I'm overcome with emotion every single time. This book will give you a swift kick in the feelings.

There aren't that many dad-focused baby books out there, and this is a good one. Daddy animals loving their babies--great illustrations and teaches body parts. Also a grand finale featuring Daddy himself!

Sid likes this because it always ends in rough-housing with Dad. I like it because it actually helped Sid learn how to find his ears, eyes, head, etc.

I love how my students kept chiming in during the story about how their dads kiss them especially before they go to sleep. It is such a simple and sweet book. The pictures are so expressive.

I love reading this one to Alice because I get to kiss her after every page . . . on the nose, the ear, the eye, etc. She's very kissable.

Simple and to the point. After a few reads, my young children picked up where the daddy animal kisses the baby animal and then they hold out their version (hand for paw) for their daddy to kiss.
