An enthusiastically positive picture book captures the magical nature of “planting” kindness and experiencing the benefit of it growing and blooming beyond the scope of just one person. This would be a relevant story to supplement a dialogue with your child about the reciprocity of kindness creating more kindness .
Lovely illustrations by Judy Moody’s artist, Peter H. Reynolds, help make this book so charming. There is the added element of tactile sparkle in the art when you get toward the conclusion of the book.
The rhyming text is simple, with most pages containing just one or two words, making this a fabulous read-aloud. If you love the whimsical rhymes of Dr. Seuss, then you will find Plant a Kiss to be a delight.
