Publisher's Description

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 Grand-mother, 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.

    I don't recommend as a Christian book for kids.
    August 6, 2012
    truthBtold
    This book left me with an erie feeling. It is inappropriate for children ages 4-6. The first thing my child said is that the picture Little Bear drew is scary. Why would he be sending a devil picture to his grandmother? Although they got married, the repeated skunk kissing was an adult theme. Children need help finding other things to do if they think they should be kissing each other repeatedly, and need to know to tell someone it if an adult is kissing them. It also is irresponsible in regards to communicable diseases. I absolutely do not recommend this as a Christian book for kids.
