"Counting Kisses" book coverReading to children can be one of the most special times a parent can have with their child. One of the very first books that my daughter started to read and request over and over again was “Counting Kisses,” by Karen Katz. From that point on, Katz was a staple on our bookshelves.

Katz is a talented author and illustrator of children’s books, and she mostly writes for babies and toddlers. However, her soft illustrations, warm words and simple stories are quick to bring a smile to readers of all ages. Here’s a short list of the books that were constantly in our bedtime rotation:

"Where is Baby's Yummy Tummy?" book coverWhere Is Baby’s Yummy Tummy?
This adorable book rhymes with consistent rhythm and is a great way to talk about individual body parts of your young one.
