Praise for THE KISS BOX -Amazon.com Book of the Year -An Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award Winner "Debut picture-book author Verburg structures the story, inspired by her personal experience, with a steady, soothing pace. Cole complements the language beautifully with watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations evoking the classic joys of childhood. . . . Similar in subject matter to Audrey Penn's THE KISSING HAND, illustrated by Ruth E. Harper and Nancy M. Leak (1993), but a whole lot more artful, this fresh take will motivate younger children to create boxes of their own."--KIRKUS REVIEWS "Verburg handles her emotionally freighted material (based on personal experience, according to the endnote) with a light, patient touch, giving Little Bear's qualms their full due before introducing his solution."--PUBLISHERS WEEKLY Praise for the How Do Dinosaurs books HOW DO DINOSAURS SAY GOOD NIGHT?
