Board books are excellent ways to have kids get used to the idea of books in general. And what a delight to find books that have both English and Plains Cree narratives. This book is one in a series of books with the dual languages.

Kiss by kiss

Babies love bright colors. They love to see themselves in books, and it is wonderful that this series is there so that it can be shared in both Plains Cree and English.

I cannot assess the Cree but the English text is easy to read and lovely and the pictures are wonderful, full-color, with diversity. Definitely a must-buy for any library with a baby book collection.

This is one of the sweetest board books for babies and toddlers I have ever read! Written in English and Plains Cree, this is a simple counting book that your child will love. The photographs are simply beautiful, include all generations and diverse families and show children kissing their loved ones.

Board books are excellent ways to have kids get used to the idea of books and knowing how to hold and manage books from an early age. This book is one in a series of books with the dual languages.

"Kiss by Kiss" is a very sweet book. It is an introduction to counting by counting kisses and filled with beautiful photography of diverse families. There are several races pictured along with single parents, a family with two dads, and a child with a grandfather.

"Kiss by Kiss" is a dual language book and features Plains Cree alongside English. For people new to Cree (like myself) there is a pronunciation guide at the beginning of the book.
