A small child gets a kiss on the “keppie” (affectionate term for “head”) all day long from his parents, his grandparents, and even Dreidel the pup!

Why I wrote this book

I wanted to write a warm, loving book that expressed the love I was given as a child by my mom, my dad, my grandparents, and even my dog! From morning ’til night, the child in the book feels he is loved and cherished, just like I did when I was a child.


A kiss on the keppie, a kiss on the head
as Mama wakes you in your warm little bed.

A kiss on the keppie along with a hug,
from Papa whose arms are so cozy and snug….
