This book is just precious! The little boy thinks he’s too big for Mama kisses and Papa hugs, so Mama and Papa tell him about kisses and hugs. Polar bear kisses are rubbing noses together and elephant hugs are when the Papa elephant wraps his trunk around the baby elephant. All the examples are explained as ways that God made them show affection.
The boy asks how God kisses and hugs us, and Mama and Papa explain that God’s kisses and hugs are around us all the time, but sometimes we miss them because we don’t look for them. God shows His affection for us by the touch of a soft breeze, the morning sun’s rays spreading across the land to our window, and by the stars in the sky, among other ways.
I’m a kisser and a hugger with my kids, and they’ll never be too big to get that gesture of love from me. I hope that, in some small way, I’m giving them a tiny taste of the love God has for them!
I was given a complimentary copy of this book by the publisher, Waterbrook Multnomah, in exchange for my honest review.
