Kisses Kisses Baby-O! is a story for newborns told from the point of view of a parent or caregiver, but with high interaction with baby’s world and tuned to events in baby’s day. Beloved children’s author, Sheree Fitch, delivers what she’s famous for: fun, intelligent, participatory text that is a joy to read. Using rhythm and onomatopoeia, the bubbly text begins with baby waking, and follows through eating, bathing, playing, and finally sleeping. Heartwarming illustrations combine realism and a whimsical, artistic style, while paying close attention to the needs of newborn readers. And babies will drool over the small, easy-to-hold format!

Sheree Fitch is an educator, literary activist and author of award-winning poetry, picturebooks, non-fiction, plays and novels for all ages. In 1998 she won the prestigious Vicky Metcalf Award for a body of work inspirational to Canadian children.
