    "Valentine’s Day brings kisses to mind. A wonderful book that looks at kisses in a unique way is Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s gem, Plant A Kiss. Illustrated brilliantly by Peter H. Reynolds, the very spare text literally sparkles and matches the mood of the story perfectly."

    "The Way We Work is a great book that will keep your child entertained and interested in learning about the human body. The pictures in the book are very informative and helpful, but not done in too much of a cartoonist style, which I believe is a great way in helping children learn. It's perfect to help them learn how their body works! "

My two year old could draw better, and, in fact, started to, when I put this book in front of him to look at. He used his crayons and the result was much better than the book was new."
