A Kiss for Little BearBook - 1968
Many animals take part in relaying a thank-you kiss to Little Bear from his grandmother
Little Bear is so pleased with the picture he has drawn that he asks Hen to take it to his grandmother. Grandmother is so happy with it that she sends him back a thank-you kiss.
How the kiss is passed from Grandmother, to Hen, to Cat, to Little Skunk, to a pretty girl skunk, and back to Little Skunk, and how eventually it comes again to Hen and finally to Little Bear will delight children just learning to read.
Else Holmelund Minarik and Maurice Sendak, the creators of the first Little Bear book for beginning readers, once again blend their extraordinary talents in a tender story filled with warmth and laughter.
This beloved classic is an ALA Notable Children's Book and a New York Times Best Illustrated Book.
Little Bear's thank-you kiss from Grandmother gets passed on to him by many animals and greatly aids the skunks' romance.

SummaryAdd a Summary
I love this book, it is such a sweetly told story. Back in 2000 I was a Youth-Friends Volunteer helping children with their reading. A child and I read this book together. I doubt he remembers the book, but a Kiss for Little Bear has lived in my heart since then. It is a wonderful little book, written during simpler times. Enjoy.
