A Kiss for You!
Joan Holub, illus. by Caroline Jayne Church. Scholastic/Cartwheel, $8.99 (14p) ISBN 978-0-545-34968-0
Readers can engage with this sunny board book by maneuvering a hand-shaped flap attached to the back cover, in seven scenes. Gently lifting the hand up and down makes a blonde girl softly pat a puppy. Elsewhere, a boy blows a kiss with the hand, and a brunette girl can play "peek-a-boo, I see you!" with readers. Though the hand may not stand up to more aggressive use, it's a fun, engaging gimmick. Ages 2%E2%80%934. (Sept.)
