About the Book
Ideal for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, or a baby shower, this tender book expresses the immeasurable love that parents have for their children--warmer than a wool blanket, sturdier than an oak tree, brighter than a rainbow. Full color.
From the Publisher
If kisses were colors you'd see every one
of the bands of a rainbow that shines in the sun.
Perfect as a Mother's Day or baby shower gift, this tender book expresses the immeasurable love that parents have for their children-warmer than a wool blanket, sturdier than an oak tree, brighter than a rainbow. It's a sentiment that will soothe and delight the adults as well as their youngsters, and the lyrical verse is complemented by delicate, fanciful paintings that possess a timeless beauty and charm.
Illustrated by Alison Jay.
