Synopsis

Catching Kisses by Amy Gibson

Wherever we go, kisses from our loved ones are always with us. At any given moment/someone, somewhere is blowing a kiss. And somewhere/someone/is catching it. So begins this journey of the heart, as readers young and old follow a handful of kisses around the United States. From San Francisco to New Orleans to New York City, the text and stylized artwork celebrate all the ways kisses are shared.

Reviews

What starts out as a celebration of affection turns out to be a paean to life in the United States, and the message is clear: in almost every kind of place you can think of, people are expressing love for each other. -- Publishers Weekly

-- Kirkus Reviews Praise for Catching Kisses A 2014 Original Art Selection, Society of Illustrators Children love kisses: the way they sound, how they feel, and the emotion they evoke. They are particularly fascinated by the imagined trajectory and landing of a blown kiss. Gibson captures all that and more in rhythmic, evocative phrases that describe kisses sailing, smelling of ginger and cinnamon, feeling as velvet as peach fuzz, and smacking like bubble gum. Van Lieshout's digital art replicates woodblock prints and takes readers from urban, suburban, forest, and waterfront settings across the land of opportunity, striking a patriotic note...adults will still appreciate the sentiment, while youngsters will eagerly await the kisses the book is sure to engender. --Booklist What starts out as a celebration of affection turns out to be a paean to life in the United States, and the message is clear: in almost every kind of place you can think of, people are expressing love for each other. -- Publishers Weekly
