Saltzberg (Animal Kisses
) returns with another touch-and-feel book about kisses, with plenty of textures and interactive features accompanying rhymed text (“Kisses in the... morning./ Kisses on your... nose”). A sausage dog kisses his little one on the head; pulling a tab makes the puppy's ears rise with glee. And later a monkey swings via pull-tab to kiss a little monkey's toes. At the end, letters of the alphabet appear on colored tabs, like miniature valentines, with more smooching animals inside. Kids will enjoy the element of surprise helping move the action forward. Up to age 3. (Jan.)
