Many thanks to I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Martha's Bookshelf for hosting the
A Kiss For You!
I made numerous dummies of the book to figure out the best way for the hand to move as a lift-the-flap. The hand folds over on each page in turn, and Scholastic had the idea of adding a magnet so the hand would stay in place easily, until lifted.
Caroline Jayne Church's adorable illustrations added just the right touch that brought the story alive. I hope you and your child enjoy this book, which so many loving hands and minds came together to create.
From Publishers Weekly: "Readers can engage with this sunny board book by maneuvering a hand-shaped flap attached to the back cover, in seven scenes. Gently lifting the hand up and down makes a blonde girl softly pat a puppy. Elsewhere, a boy blows a kiss with the hand, and a brunette girl can play "peek-a-boo, I see you!" with readers...a fun, engaging gimmick. Ages 2–4. (Sept.)"
MY GIVEAWAY IN THE HOP IS:
