In her new illustrated children’s bookA Kiss in My Pocket” (published by Balboa Press) author Karen Paquette crafts a story that celebrates the incredible love between children and their grandparents.

In “A Kiss in My Pocket” a little girl delights in keeping her grandma’s kiss in her pocket and uses the kiss to help make her days happier until she visits her grandma again. The daily trials of toddler life are easier for the little girl to face with a kiss from grandma in her pocket. Grandparents everywhere will relate to the idea of creating a special connection that allows them to be part of their grandchild’s day even when they are apart.

An excerpt from “A Kiss in My Pocket”:

“Grandma’s kiss makes me smile and makes my heart sing.
Grandma says the kiss is there even if you cannot see it.
Grandma thinks the secret pocket is the perfect place for kisses.”

Paquette believes her book’s true strength is its authenticity.

“‘A Kiss in My Pocket’ emphasizes the importance of the relationship between generations,” she says. “Being mindful of small moments creates heartfelt connections with loved ones. The story is based on a rich, personal ‘backstory’ and this gives meaning and depth to the finished product.”
