Dear Parents, 

Can a kiss be planted? Can kisses grow, bloom, and bring joy to more and more people? This is a surprising and charming book about a Little Miss who plants a kiss in the ground that blooms into a treasure of love.

 

"A blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive"

(Malachi 3:10)

Kisses are a wonderful way of expressing love, intimacy, and a strong connection. The blessing that love grows is infinite, a blessing so great that there is not enough room to receive it! Childrearing is founded upon love, and when we give our children love and kisses, we sow the seeds of confidence, trust and joy in them, "from one little kiss, endless bliss".

Enjoy reading and doing the activities together!

פעילות בחיק המשפחה

  • You may want to snuggle up on the couch together, give your child a kiss, and ask them when they like to be kissed, whether they like to be woken up with a kiss, and who they like kissing.
  • While reading the story, we suggest pausing before the kiss sprouts, and asking your child whether or not they think the kiss will indeed grow. You could let them leaf through the book, and try to discover the rest of the story for themselves.
  • Little Miss plants, waters, and cares for her kiss. Your child can also help you plant some flowers or grow a vegetable patch. You could also sprout beans or chickpeas, and observe the magic of growth.
  • You may enjoy going on a kissing spree around the house, giving all family members kisses, calling your grandparents, uncles, and aunts and blowing them kisses over the telephone, and feeling how pleased kisses make your entire family, and how much joy they bring.
  • You may want to put on some lipstick, and fill a blank sheet of paper with colorful kisses. Once your sheet of paper is full, you can cut out the kisses, and use them to decorate your child's bedroom.
  • How about baking kisses (Hebrew for baked meringues) and giving them out to your loved ones? Ingredients 8 egg whites,  1 ¼ cups of sugar,  1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice,  Method: Heat your oven to 130 degrees. Whisk the egg whites with the sugar and lemon juice until the mixture is stiff and glossy. Line a baking pan with parchment paper, put the mixture into a pastry bag, and pipe meringues onto the pan. Bake for approximately two hours. Give away your meringues (kisses) to all your friends, neighbors and family!
