This is a wonderful book for any age and any occasion. Not to mention, it is perfect for Valentine's Day. PLANT A KISS is a sweet, simple, and beautifully written book about sharing love. Little Miss plants a kiss, waits patiently and is surprised by what happens next. A delightful story showing the "endless bliss" that comes from sharing our love...a kiss. It has fantastic illustrations by Peter Reynolds and even glitter! An absolute must have for every library. My two year old loves it and my husband and I never tire of reading it over and over and over...the ultimate sign of a good book.
Amy Krouse Rosenthal's spare, thoughtful prose paired with Peter H. Reynolds' always stunning watercolors makes for a wonderful book. In simple rhyme it tells the story of Little Miss who plants a kiss on the ground and tends it very carefully. It blossoms beautifully and she, in spite of warnings, shares it and shares it and shares it.I call my four-year-old daughter Little Miss and she is highly affectionate. This book seemed made for her and I knew she would adore it. The fact that the pages are not overwhelmed with text makes every word count and allows a serious focus on the illustrations. Before long my Little Miss will be reading this one on her own again and again.
Cute story, but there is glitter on the pages which might not be the best for very small children. We read to our baby and he likes to touch the pages and so could get it in his eyes. It is just something to be aware of when considering this book.
I have loved all of Amy Rosethal's books and I wnated to love this one but just couldn't. The concept is a good one but I don't feel like the book conveys it in a way that makes kids even slightly understand it. I read it to my three kids on Valentine's Day and even my oldest daughter who's 11 had a look on her face like, "What was that about?" There are only a few words to a page and the last ones are "eternal bliss." What kid even has a slight idea of what that is??? I feel like the need to rhyme overshadowed the concept in this book. I did like the illustrations and the shimmery accents. I had bought this to use with my guidance classes but this one is going to have to go back.
Very simple story, but so cute and so much fun to read. The illustrations are adorable too. This is one of those books where my kids can point out different things or add their own ideas without me getting frustrated because I'm trying to read the words. I rotate books on our mantle for the changing holidays and seasons, and this was perfect for our Valentine's display. We read it throughout the year, though, because it's so much fun.
This book made me tear up when I picked it up in the store - what a simple and beautiful way to tell children about the positive of Love's energy.
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. Have you ever wondered what might happen if you planted a kiss? No? Well, you are in for a delight when you share this book with your special child. Before you begin, ask your little one to predict what might happen if he or she planted a kiss. The question is sure to fire up their imaginations. It will also open a window into the way they think and feel which helps parents know and understand their children better.Adoptive families can connect this book to adoption.: This story line can serve as a wonderful conversation starter. Ask kids what else they might “plant.” Then, have them predict what might happen. Compare the “harvest” of each emotion. Conversations like these can be a wonderful gateway to important conversations about deeply held adoption-related thoughts and feelings. You might be surprised by what your child reveals. This creates a great chance to validate their feelings, clarify confusion and address their worries and concerns. --Gayle H. Swift, "ABC, Adoption & Me: A Multicultural Picture Book"
I loved the idea of this book but I think I overimagined had great it would be based off pictures I had in my own head of planting a kiss. The story pages lacked color. The glitter glued on the pages didn't look so great on the opposite side of the page. I'd love to return it. I'd love to rewrite it! My little girls who always beg to hold the book after I am done reading were even bored and ran off after the story without asking and I was a little suprised that it was apparent they didn't enjoy it either.
