Review: If Kisses Were Colors by Janet Lawler & Alison Jay (Illus.)

 Perfect for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, any day, this tender little board book celebrates the immeasurable love of a parent for a child- warmer than a wool blanket, sturdier than an oak tree, brighter than a rainbow. Lyrical verse is complemented by Alison Jay’s delicate, whimsical paintings. A perfect baby shower gift and bedtime book, this timeless gem will soothe and delight adults as well as their babies and toddlers.

Very cutesy little story for any little one to enjoy as their falling asleep. A non-specific topic except an admittance of the love for one to another.

The nice thing about the repetitive lyrics is the fact that it’s a boardbook. What’s so special about boardbooks? Well it’s the fact that baby can chew on it and mum doesn’t have to worry about how much they paid for it. Inexpensive is the point I’m getting at, that’s the bonus part!

The colors are shades of pastel which almost demonstrates a soothing or relaxing air. This story would be good for starter books and bedtime stories.
