A Kiss Means I Love You

Beautifully clear photos illustrate feelings all kids experience. Written in simple, evocative rhyme by Kathryn Madeline AllenA Kiss Means I Love You shows nonverbal communication via real children living in Chicago. Eric Futran‘s photography captures every nuance of expression making this book ideal to read again and again.

A kiss means I love you,                                 

a wave means hello,

a smile means I’m happy,

a tug means let’s go!


Have your students act out the feelings like the kids in the pictures and talk about communicating without words.
