From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2–A little lamb's birthday dawns sunflower bright, with a special gift, a kiss, and a request from his loving parent: "Won't you be my kissaroo?" Colorfully clad animal friends are just as lucky, receiving special kisses ("A morning kiss... full of sun.... A breakfast kiss... nice and sweet.... A hello kiss... soft as rain...") from their own caring grown-ups. Sweet's large, charmingly simple watercolor, pencil, and collage pictures have an appealing primary-grade sensibility and are awash with a golden-sunlight glow and a sort of innocent awe. They combine beautifully with Ryder's easy rhyming text to invite readers to join the bear, bunny, butterfly, puppy, kitten, and funny frog in red boots who gather to surprise their woolly friend to celebrate his happy day. Finally, the sleepy-eyed young sheep is tucked into bed, and, while fireflies punctuate the night-blue sky outside his window, he receives a cozy kiss and a reprise of the question of the day: "So... Won't you be my kissaroo?/And every day, the whole day through,/we'll share new kisses.../me and you!" A feel-good choice for sharing one-on-one or with a group, and a high-quality addition to the kisses-and-hugs collection.–Kathy Krasniewicz, Perrot Library, Old Greenwich, CT
