Kiss, tickle, cuddle and hug your way through a book every baby and toddler will love.

An enjoyable board book for babies and toddlers that introduces facial expressions, emotions and gestures of affection. In Kiss, Tickle, Cuddle, Hug, emotions are linked to facial expressions with an array of colorful close-up photographic images that showcases a multiethnic cast of babies. Perfect for little hands to hold, this is a board book to share and enjoy over and over again.

Susan Musgrave has been nominated for and has received awards in five different categories of writing—poetry, fiction, nonfiction, personal essay, children's writing—and for her work as an editor. She has published many books, including Love You More, More Blueberries and Kiss, Tickle, Cuddle, Hug. Susan lives on Haida Gwaii, British Columbia, and teaches poetry in the Optional Residency MFA in Creative Writing Program at the University of British Columbia.

"A range of emotions recognizable by caregivers and early childhood educators alike will appeal to babies and toddlers who are becoming more emotionally aware...Babies will be especially attracted to the variety of facial expressions, and all readers will appreciate the racial diversity of the children in the photographs...Highly Recommended." - CM Magazine

"Big, beautiful photos of babies demonstrate a range of infant emotions and the needs they imply. These head shots of ethnically diverse youngsters show their happy, silly, angry and sad faces, to name a few. In a nice departure from the typical baby-photo board book, each child is named, and the need their facial expression reveals is also explored...The photos stretch to the edge of the page, and the text, in a simple, strong type, appears on the facing page over soft-colored backgrounds...Sure to elicit some parent and child kisses, tickles, cuddles and hugs." - Kirkus Reviews

"A fun and vibrant book for parents to read to their babies as well as participate in some of the expressions and actions...Vibrating pastel coloured backgrounds make it engaging and interesting for a baby to look at and listen to...A book that will tickle a smile out of any baby!" - Resource Links
