Blow me a kiss by Karen Collum

New Frontier Publishing, 2015. ISBN 9781925059342 Highly recommended for young readers. Picture book. The power of a kiss is amazing and Samuel's kisses have the power to change people! A beautiful story about how we can all change the world even with the smallest of actions. Samuel blows kisses to different people as he walks around with his mum. An old man starts dancing. A lady starts to juggle oranges. Another lady smiles at him. Is a kiss really that powerful? This gorgeous picture book is aimed at young children and would be great for them to read with their parents. It would also be good for the classroom - use it as a model for students to create their own version and investigate ways they can change the world. Kylie Kempster
