Mary Murphy is the author and illustrator of a number of children's books, including HOW KIND!. I KISSED THE BABY!, she says, "is about how excited everyone is to welcome a new baby into the community. It's best read, like a nursery rhyme, by whomever is holding Baby at the time. She lives in Galway, Ireland.

I fed the baby Finally the duck says, "Of course I kissed the baby, my own amazing baby.

What a hungry little one!" Set on solid black or white backgrounds, the words are in big, splashy letters of the opposite color as are the simple, graphic animal figures, one to a page: fish, squirrel, ant, bird, frog. A thick edge of bright color oozes along one edge of each spread. Finally the duck says, "Of course I kissed the baby, my own amazing baby. Her little duckling is in bright yellow; her mother's kiss "Ppfffwah!" in glowing tea rose, with little pink hearts.

I tickled the baby, the wriggly, giggly thing!' Join in the fun in this shout-out-loud picture book for the very youngest of children. Mary Murphy's new picture book "Utterly Lovely One" will be published in hardback in 2011.


My baby isn’t a fan of being a baby. In fact, being a baby just makes her mad. She hates not being able to move around herself. She hates not being able to communicate with me well. She hates her swing, her bouncy seat, her crib, and especially her carseat. My conclusion: she hates being a baby.

However, for whatever reason, she loves being read to. Her favoritest of favorite books is I Kissed the Baby by Mary Murphy. We have been reading this since she was one month old. Now, she is about 20 weeks old and looks forward to reading it every night. As soon as I pull it out of the stack, she becomes instantly silent and her eyes go wide in anticipation.What makes this book extra appealing to a new baby? The high contrast black and white illustrations instantly catch her eye. They caught her attention even when she was a newborn. The text design moves around the page, which also creates a visual element for her to study. As she grew and her sight improved, she began to focus on the bright spots of color that some pages feature. For instance, the baby duck is bright yellow.

She also enjoys the repetition of the text, which is sing-song in nature. For instance one double-page spread feature two animals conversing: “I fed the baby! Did you feed the baby? / Yes, I fed the baby, what a hungry little one.”

Lately, in her fourth month, she has begun to love it when I act out some of the text’s movements with her. For instance “I tickled the baby! Did you tickle the baby?” At this point, I tickle her. She likes “I kissed the baby, did you kiss the baby?” even more – because I give her a giant, loud, smacking kiss. Evidently, this is hysterical.

Also, this book is perfect for two voices. Her daddy and I often read it to her together. While she doesn’t have a big (or little) sibling, this would be wonderful to read in two voices with an older sister or brother, too.

I love, love this book, and - more importantly - so does my baby. Try the board book, if you want a format perfect for little hands, little mouths, and little teeth!
Cute book, but dont exoect anything long or complex. Also the quality is like that of any other board book- it will definitely get beat up and start to show wear and tear after while lol. I bought I bunch of these black and white books when my son was a baby after reading about the benefits of white/black contrasting for their little eyes to interpret best. He really did love this one (along with a lot of silliness from me and inflection in my voice). We still have this book almost 6 years later and will read on occasion for giggles and to reminisce on his babyhood!
This is such a cute book for a very young baby! Our three month old has really woken up to the world these past few weeks, and the bold black and white images and large "handwritten" words really catch her eye. It is so cute to see her just stare at the animals on the pages and at least glance at the words. :) The story is very basic and short, of course, but it has a really good rhyming cadence to it which delights babies and keeps it a little less boring for the adults reading it. Here's hoping it is the beginning of a long life of fascination with the written word for her.
My now 6month old and l love reading this and have since we got it when he was about 4 months. I even recite it to him when we are in the car or without books to calm and comfort him. It is such a sweet story and them images are perfect; mostly black and white with a bright color or two on each page. This is our favorite book. I ordered it after falling in love with "I like it when" also by Mary Murphy. We're very happy with both of these books.
I was hoping for a little bit more out of this book than I received. There are better high contrast books out there with better pictures and "verbage" if you know what I mean. I agree with another reviewer who mentioned that she just felt like it was missing the whole rhyming thing. I liked the whole "I kissed the baby. Did you kiss the baby?", but had they added somewhat of a rhyming story line, the book could have been a home-run. I guess I just expect baby books to "flow" a little better than this one did. My little girl listened to the story and looked at the pictures, but it didn't hold her attention like her other high contrast books. If the whole flowing, rhyming thing, isn't an issue for you, then this is the right book for you.
We got this book for our 3-month-old baby. Since babies that young see better in high-contrast black & white than full color we decided to get this book.

It has some color accents, but it's mostly B/W. Our baby really payed and still pays attention (at 6-months) and seems to like the rhyme of the story.

It's board book so it's not for the baby to handle but for you to read and let her touch the illustrations. Now that our baby is older we're thinking on introducing books with texture and some soft-cover books, even when these tend to turn into toys more than books.

I hope this review helps you make your mind.

She's 18 months now. And still loves this book. Babies like expectation and cause and consequence, this book helps with that if you play with your baby while reading it.
My 15 month old son LOVES this book, and has loved it since we started reading it at 4 or 5 months old. While I personally think it could have been better done (pictures of the animals actually doing the things they say they did, rather than pictures of the animals just dancing around), my son DOES NOT CARE. The first time we read it each day, he patiently listens to the whole book, relishing the anticipation of his favorite part... the kissing! He knows he gets a couple of big smackers from mom or dad when we get there. The second or third time we read it, he turns each page early, sometimes skipping over them altogether to get to the kissing part. Gratuitous, but SO lovely. If you have a young baby, this is a great book for a starter library. The pictures are graphic and engaging for little minds. And this book will help you and your baby associate reading time with all kinds of yummy things. Kissing especially.
