0 Valentine Pick : Plant a Kiss

The Book:
Plant a Kiss by Amy Krouse Rosenthal is a delightful book on  kindness and sharing, illustrated by Peter H Reynolds.

The Bubble:

The book is about a little girl who "plants" a kiss. She cares for it by watering it , greeting it and showing it sunshine. She waits for it with all the hope for it to sprout and stayed by it through rain, snow and sunshine. When it does, she calls all to show the magic. She shares it with all only to realize that the kisses multiplied. She gleefully goes about, spreading more of those kiss-seeds all over, thus spreading more love for endless bliss!

The book has maximum 3 or 4 word rhyming sentences and would be a treat to hear a beginning reader read it aloud. The illustrations are an overload of cuteness and a treat to see!

Bubble Ink's verdict:

Such a modern take on kisses, all life's lessons between the two covers of the book!
Use the book to teach your little one the goodness of planting, caring and hoping against all odds and acts of kindness and sharing. After all kindness is a magic penny, lend it , spend it , give it away and comes right back to you in multitudes!

Blow a kiss, fly a kiss and come on , plant a  kiss!

On this Valentine, may there only be longer lasting bliss!

We give it 5 bubbles.

Watch the book trailer hereWe came to know about the book from our very own "Pappadum". We have placed an order for our own copy with them.We bought one on to gift to a friend's daughter.

Bubbling's verdict:

My bubbling @2Years is a bit too young for the book. So this section is a verdict from a 6 year bubbling, a friend's daughter - to whom we gifted the book and instantly took to it and loved it. Infact, read it at one of her school functions where she received the "Star award". In her own words, "I like it a lot because she shares it with everyone".
It is a Bubbling-Full-Five.
