What Kind of Kiss?

Alyssa Satin Capucilli. HarperFestival, $6.95 (12pp) ISBN 978-0-694-01573-3

A baby bear surveys smooching styles in What Kind of Kiss? by Alyssa Satin Capucilli, illus. by Hiroe Nakata: ""What kind of kiss do you like, Mama?/ What kind of kiss do you like?"" says the cub. ""A good-morning kiss,"" seems to be the mother's simple reply, until the double fold-out page reveals, in addition, ""a rise-and-shine kiss,/ a kiss-to-start-the-day kiss."" The format repeats throughout until mother and father bear turn the tables. Nakata's tender illustrations make clever use of the expanding horizontal space. ( Dec.)
