Good News for the Blues! Kiss It Better by Smriti Prasadam-Halls
SOMETIMES YOU FEEL DOWN IN THE DUMPS.
YOU'VE GOT BRUISES AND BUMPS!
Even little bears have bad days and blue days. But as Mama Bear points out,
A KISS ISN'T FAR AWAY.
Tears and fears, cares and scares are not far away in any little one's day, but with a loving family around to pick up the pieces of broken toys and patch up scraped knees, things can't be all bad!
Smriti Prasadam-Hall's little story of family love, Kiss it Better (Bloomsbury Press, 2016), the power of a kiss for little hurts and hurt feelings is the magical cure.
IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW FUNNY YOU FEEL...
AN I'M-THERE-FOR-YOU-KISS SOON HELPS YOU TO HEAL.
With Smriti Prasadam-Hall's rhythmic and rhyming couplets and artist Sarah Massini's mixed-mdia collages in a soft pastel palette, along with a supply of kisses that never fails, this little love story is perfect fare of Valentine's Day or any day when somebody needs just a little loving and a kiss. "The cheerful illustrations beautifully convey the sentiments. . . . What's not to love about this charming selection?" says School Library Journal.
