Kangaroo Kisses

 

KK.JPG

 How many excuses can you come up with when you don't want to stop playing? Follow one mischievous child as she delays getting ready for bed - and has some amazing wildlife encounters along the way! Kangaroo Kisses is a delightful mix of fantasy and real life. Playful rhymes and lovely illustrations make it a perfect picture book for reading aloud at bedtime - or any time.

"So well crafted that it requires no effort to make it into a great shared read aloud experience...Taking Kangaroo Kisses as an example, we can certainly look forward to some wonderful books that encompass diversity and promote empathy- and that children will want to have read to them again and again." Mirrors Windows Doors

 

"A warm and spirited invitation to dreamland.”
