'Cosy, gentle bedtime tale with a Guess How Much I Love You appeal.' Bookseller

'This book is a warm hug on a chilly night, a delight to read aloud with a little bear cub nestled in your arms and perfect to enjoy together just before bed. With it's exquisite illustrations and simple lyrical text this will no doubt be a story to share and share across many generations.' The Book Sniffer

'Gabriel Alborozo takes Claire Harcup brief rhythmic text and adds utterly enchanting visuals (including gorgeous end papers) making the whole thing a thoroughly heart-warming, just before bed read, for adults to share with very young children.. I suspect it’s one that will be asked for over and over. And, such is the simplicity of the writing that those in the early stages of becoming a reader can try it for themselves – make sure you share it first though.”' Red Reading Hub

'“A big bear and a little bear are getting ready for bedtime – a process with lots of lovely stages. They wave goodbye to their snowman, hold hands for the walk home, smile, have a last play, tickle and giggle, before a hug and finally a good night kiss. In a few perfectly chosen words and warm, vibrant illustrations author and illustrator capture the love, joy and playfulness of the bedtime routine. No matter how tiring or difficult their day, this will leave both child and parent feeling happy and peaceful as they say goodnight.”' LoveReading Andrea Reece

'If you’re looking for winter evening reads, This Is The Kiss is a beautiful bed time book for little ones, all about the bears’ bed time routine. Written by Claire Harcup and illustrated by Gabriel Alborozo, This Is The Kiss is a gorgeous book to add to your collection. [...] It’s the ideal book to read when you’ve had a smooth and pleasant transition from day to night. [...] I think the best words to describe this book are ‘charming’ and ‘warm’. It is a bit like a cuddle between two hard covers. And it’s definitely one for the bed time bookshelf and for any reading themes around “love” for February too!' Diary of a First Child

'“This charming, lyrical picture book celebrates the bond between parent and child, with illustrations that will warm even the frostiest of hearts!”' Baby Hampshire
