My 3 year old and I love this story. Even though we’re read it about 10 times he still wonders that Hugs is trying to find out. This is a great gift for any mom as it is about a mother’s kiss. My husband bought it for Mother’s Day and I bought a copy for my sister for her Mother’s Day. Check it out!
From Publishers Weekly This homage to affection from a French team stars Hugs, a farm puppy who is on a mission to find out which animal delivers the best kiss. Each encounter possesses its own distinct characteristics. The horse’s delivery, for example, “was a bit damp, of course, and sticky, but it was quite warm.” A rabbit’s kiss was “a bit wiggley, of course, and quick, but it was quite soft.” If the narrative includes a few too many examples and winds up predictably (his mother’s kiss is best), Tharlet’s paintings carry the volume. Keeping background elements to a minimum, she focuses each of her graceful, gauzy, ink-and-watercolor illustrations on the smooches themselves, which she imagines in endearing vignettes. Hugs rises up on his hind legs to connect with a butterfly and sits blissfully to receive a buss on each cheek from a pair of doting ducks; a comically looming pink sow plants one on the hero’s nose. Like a kiss itself, this tale may well be the subject of repeated requests. Ages 3-5.

Hugs and Kisses (Touch and Feel) Board book – December 1, 2005 by Christophe Loupy (Author) Review
This is one of the cutest books ever! I originally purchased his book about 12 years ago for my nephew. This purchase was for a baby shower gift and I’m sure when the baby’s a little older, she will love it. FYI The picture here is nothing like the adorable picture on the front of the book I purchase. -Read Reviews-
This is a cute book for me to read to my 21 month old daughter. I love the touch and fell fabrics and the interaction I get from my daughter. Short story but very nice!
