If you have read my "About Me", you know I have a baby girl and a toddler son. My husband has been sick this week, so I took the kids to the bookstore to get them out of his hair... so he could wash his hair and start feeling like a human being again. Well, I hadn't read Leslie Patricelli's board book Huggy Kissy yet, so I read it aloud to M. This is the first book she actually giggled at when I read it aloud. She loves books (especially the way they taste), she loves looking at the illustrations and snuggling while we read together, but she has never quite responded to a book with actual glee before. I just had to write about it because it made my heart melt and I feel gratitude to Leslie Patricelli for creating these books. My sons' favorite was/is Yummy Yucky (he laughed aloud to this one when he was a baby).
