A beautiful little interpretation of a child who savors the bed time ritual. When waiting for Mommy, kisses are given to all who wait in the play area. In the end furry friends and child are tucked in bed after learning to count to ten.
The adorable illustrations by Ginger Nielson pop from the page, are soft, bright, enticing and are sure to be a child pleaser. Bedtime Kisses written by Karin Larson is a resource book for toddlers learning to count to ten and also for Young children beginning to read.
I think this would be a perfect end of the day story with a soft and soothing feel that helps a child experience the bedtime tuck-in with security and contentment.
Loved this book for its overall pleasing feel and affect.
Stars and treats for this one!

Ginger Nielson began her artist career early in life when she created a misty morning fog in the upstairs hallway of her parents Victorian home .She used her older sister's dusting powder and powder mitt as the catalyst. It was in the days when people still believed in spanking, but she talked her way out that one. Coming to the world of children's illustration a bit later in life, Ginger was an elementary school teacher and art teacher before becoming a travel agent. Both of those careers enabled her to connect deeply with many children and many different cultures. Visit Ginger at http://www.gingernielson.com
