This book is adored by my 8 month old baby girl. It's a nice over-sized board book; which means larger illustrations for baby to look at. Counting Kisses was her first interactive book. Each page counts down starting from ten kisses to one final kiss on the last page. Having you kiss baby from head to toe as you read each page. This book stands out among the other board books that we have. My daughter also loves all of the extra kisses that come with this book. This easily keeps her attention and is frequently part of our nighttime routine. If she's exhausted after her bath, we will skip this book and go with a less interactive one. Or I will read to her and only kiss her head on the last page.

I highly recommend this book for all babies and toddlers. You won't regret it.
We started reading this book to our daughter as bedtime story since she was two-month, and now she is almost two years old. We read it almost every night. The simple, bright and colorful context is very attractive, she definitely loves it. Also, counting numbers with kisses is great way for early education on math.
What to do when baby is unhappy, several ideas abound.

Little baby is not smiling, and that is unusual, what to do? Mommy knows and she starts with ten little kisses on ten little toes,mand then feet. Gramma takes over with 7 kisses on baby's belly, the dog even gets in some licks with 6 licks while y is being changed. And, on down to baby's head,nowhere she baby is snugly and warm and ready for bed with one little kiss to her head.

The author, Karen Katz hamza way with words, and she seems to know exactly what to do with little babies who aren't smiling. Parents and adults will love this story and soon kisses may be shared by young and old. The illustrations are beautiful, colorful, vivid and bright, just right to mix with this story. What a way to end your day, with kisses and snuggles.

Bought this since we liked all the lift-the-flap books from this author. I should have read the reviews more carefully, as this does not have flaps.

The "story" is also a little weak, since it's just counting from ten down to one... The pattern is "[family member] gives baby [x number] of kisses on [body part]" and it isn't very interesting
This is not my favorite Karen Katz book but my children absolutely love it so I am giving it 5 stars. It is a great introduction to numbers. For example: "One kiss on babies sleepy head." My 18 month olds love it when I kiss them as I read through the story. The reason it's not my favorite is that there aren't a lot of words and I reread it a lot to my kiddos.
Very cute book. However.... It is made of a thick cardboard, and I was very pleased, except it was warped. I purchased this to give as a gift, so I had to retun it for a replacement, which was warped also. Worked for a day trying to flatten it and bend it to be acceptable as a gift. Still slightly warped, and I was not happy about it, but didn't feel like going through the return process a second time (even though Amazon always make it very easy),
This book is perfect for new mom's or those that are expecting. Great for your first read that involves the baby's and makes them laugh. I purchased this for my niece who is expecting there first born girl, and she loved it.
My one year old loves this book and enjoys the kisses mommy gives him.
