From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade 2–This tender story captures a boy at that stage of early childhood when he bestows kisses grandly and generously. The concept works out well as a counting book–one kiss for his bossy big sister, two for his tireless dad, three for mother lying on the couch, etc. His teachers, hair dresser–even the little girl who won't kiss him back–receive his lavish displays of affection. The enthusiastic text is well adapted by the translator, rendered into Mexican slang terms such as la mera mera (for the big sister who thinks she's the boss). Delgado's saturated-color artwork is equally exuberant as it portrays a representative Southwestern Latino family. In a market replete with clever concept books, this one will no doubt find its special niche.
