Have you ever counted how many kisses you’ve had in your life? A mother’s kiss is an intimate expression of her love for a child, and of her warmth and hope as the child grows up.
From the moment she hears her baby’s heartbeat, a mother can’t wait to give her child all the love in the world. Birth, crying, crawling, learning to walk – ordinary things that we take for granted are precious memories for mothers. A mother’s kiss is an expression of love that cannot be conveyed in words, and her kisses create an environment of love in which her child can grow.
Author Chen Shu-Ting takes the mother’s point of view, and in small, meaningful details of everyday life, tells of her own love and tenderness towards her newborn baby. Using warm colors and cleverly bringing in pets, illustrator Deer Jan makes the story appropriate for modern-day family life.
