Faves of 2012

Okay it is that time of the year again where anyone and everyone puts together lists of their top picks of the past year. I am going to be no different, I will, however, not be doing a top 10. What I have put here are the ones that really stood out, but truthfully I had many wonderful reading experiences this year just about gone, and I did limit this list to those books published in 2012.

Plant A Kiss

By: Amy Krause Rosenthal

Illustrated By: Peter H Reynolds

Little Miss plants a kiss, cares for it and waits. Then one day it finally blooms. Little Miss decides to share the fruit of the kiss even though others say it is rare and might run out if she does. Little Miss doesn’t care she wants to share and discovers something amazing about a planted kiss.

This is a fun, whimsical story that you cannot help but smile at. It is going to leave you feeling warm and fuzzy in the inside and possibly joyful enough to spread that onto the outside. Reynold’s illustrations are delightfully charming. There is little text but that just adds to the story’s appeal. Perfect for younger children who aren’t yet ready for more text laden books.

Lovely, delightful and recommended.
