Little Miss planted a kiss . . .

One small act of love blooms into something bigger and more dazzling than Little Miss could have ever imagined in this epic journey about life, kindness, and giving.

New York Times bestselling author Amy Krouse Rosenthal and award-winning illustrator Peter H. Reynolds have teamed together for the first time, creating what may soon prove to be a perennial favorite.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

What a simple, sweet idea for a picture book! A little girl plants a kiss, then waits for it to grow. When it sprouts, she takes the harvest and shares it throughout the world, in spite of the objections of her friends, who say she'll use it all up. But when all of the kiss has been distributed, there's a surprise waiting for the little farmer.

Peter H. Reynolds's lovely illustrations perfectly complement this simple rhyming tale of kindness from Amy Krouse Rosenthal. This would make a great bedtime read due to its short length and relaxing themes.
