Kisses for Daddy
BABY BEAR IS GRUMBLY and doesn’t want to go to bed. When he refuses to kiss Daddy Bear goodnight, Daddy Bear tries every kiss in the animal kingdom as he gives Baby Bear his bath and puts him to bed.

The story and beautiful illustrations in this book perfectly capture the magical moments between a father and child as they play, giggle and express affection. Even though the characters are bears, it’s their wonderful humanity that makes this book so sweet.
