 About the Book

From the creator of the best-selling God Gave Us You comes a warm exploration of the ways parents show affection--and how it mirrors God's affection for his followers.

Parents are always looking out for the perfect bedtime book to create a sense of well-being before a night of rest. Mama Kisses, Papa Hugs explores a child's curiosity about how love is shown between parent and child, with the reassurance that Mama and Papa will always love their little one. And like Lisa Tawn Bergren's young protagonist asks his mother, this question is pressing on the minds of many children:

"Mama, how does God kiss us?"

Mama smiled. "He kisses us a hundred times a day; although if you don't pay attention, you might miss it."

"At night he kisses us with a shooting star. In the morning, he kisses us with sunlight, crawling across the fields and into our windows. On a hot summer afternoon, he kisses us with a gentle breeze. But most of all, he kisses us through our family. That's how God made us. That's why I give you Mama kisses." (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

This is such a great book! The illustrations are lovely and the story is a fun read along for kiddos. It goes through and talks about all the fun ways that animals "hug" or "kiss". So for example lions and tigers give their cubs "slurpy licks" to take care of them and pigs snuggle in the mud etc. It is fun and the wording makes it a perfect story. The only thing is I wish that it was a board book but it is still a fun book for littles. 

Five Stars.
