We have filled the Kids Corner with so many wonderful new books! Let me tell you a little bit about one of my favorites and a favorite of my daughter.
The Kiss Box by Bonnie Verburg and illustrated by Henry Cole
This is a beautiful story of how we may sometimes get anxious when we have to be away from our loved ones – whether it be for an errand, a trip to the grocery store, a business trip, or the first day of school.
“Mama Bear was always home, and that’s the way Little Bear like it. But one day she needed to go away — just for a little while. “Will you come back?” asked Little Bear. “I will always come back,” Mama Bear told him. “And even when I’m not with you, I send you kisses every minute we’re apart…”“
To help Little Bear contain all of these kisses Mama Bear made him a Kiss Box and filled it with a hundred kisses. “Every time you need a kiss, just open the jar, and a kiss will fly from me to you.” Little Bear made Mama Bear a kiss box in return, “so they could send kisses back and forth, no matter where they are.”
The Kiss Box is a tender reminder that we are always together where it matters most: in our hearts.
