"A well-illustrated tale that's full of whimsy and affection." —Kirkus Reviews
Children often need help handling big feelings. When they know they are made of love, they have a much easier time with the challenging things life brings. Help set your child up with a foundation of inner-love with this whimsical, magical debut picture book from Sky Eiko.
TREASURE CHEST OF KISSES tells the story of a magical treasure chest that lives forever inside of us, storing all of the kisses and love we receive throughout our entire lives. This precious, heartwarming tale guides children to discover & cultivate their foundation of inner-love for a lifetime of emotional wellbeing.
As parents, community members, and caregivers, we play the most critical role in helping our children know they are loved, and how the love within them can help them--how they can self-resource from that love. To that end, Treasure Chest of Kisses is, first, a love letter, and second, through its imagery, a guide to help children locate, imagine, sense, and feel the very love that they are made of.
The pages are sweet, rhyming, and whimsical, with a message so beneficial for children to soak up in the night! The book also emphasizes that we are all always connected to each other through love. If a child misses mama when at school, or a grandparent, pet, or any loved one who has passed, or a friend who moved away, they can close their eyes to feel all that love & affection from them that live forever in their treasure chest!
Each book comes with a QR code that links to a rotating trove of goodies for you to download and keep, which may include: the book's song; a self-resourcing guidebook; a meditation to connect with inner-love; a video of the book read by the author; and more.

'Love refills on its own, so you’ll always have plenty.'
This is absolutely precious and wholesome. The artwork is great and the rhymes are well done, with a lovely message!
This was a cute story, and I loved the illustrations. They felt unique and whimsical, and I really liked the magic. The story was heartfelt, without being too mushy or too related to traditional families.
Cute children’s book on how a family gives a little girl a treasure chest full of hearts that will help carry love and help cure any injuries. Thank you NetGalley for the chance to read this book in exchange for my honest feedback!
This book is so whimsical, colorful, unique and wholesome! Absolutely love it.
It serves as a nice reminder to children that they always carry love within themselves.
I even needed this reminder as an adult!
Whether it be from friends or family, their love is always apart of us.
My favorite line was “Love refills on its own, so you’ll always have plenty.”
At the end of the book there is a QR code to some exclusive content, like video-led meditations. I think is an awesome touch to go along with the book!
This was a sweet book about love that lives on after our loved ones are no longer with us.
It’s a sweet concept with lovely illustrations.
Something that children of any age can appreciate.
Thank you, Henrietta Publishing, for the advance reading copy.
This book is so beautiful inside out. It is a celebration of our individual self. Reading this book to someone younger will definitely help them believe that they are being loved and accepted as who they are.
The illustration is powerful and so well done. Love the book. It makes me rejoice myself becoming who I am now.
Treasure Chest of Kisses is a whimsically illustrated children's book about their internal 'treasure chest' that is filled with their self love and love from others, and encourages them to look within when they need encouragement, bravery and love on happy and sad days. It also touches on how love from people stay with us, even after they've passed on. Lovely book I'd highly recommend.

A Treasure Chest of Kisses by Sky Eiko, Pham Thuy Mai Thy
The book ‘Treasure Chest of Kisses’ comes with a central idea that words of affirmation, praise, physical touch in the form of hugs and kisses help build a treasure chest which is like a children’s love bank account. The more love we add to this treasure chest, the more it grows big day by day and it makes children feel powerful. It is this strength that helps them navigate through the odds in life.
With captivating illustrations and rhyming words, the book A Treasure chest of kisses, by Sky Eiko and Pham Thuy Mai Thy talks about the deep loving bond, the hugs & kisses that forms the strong foundation of children’s lives. This treasure chest of kisses is embedded deep within the heart that loves us, protects us, and helps us grow during unforeseen times.
It is important for young children to be reminded of this love that is treasured safe in the heart even if they are away or need an embrace. The author emphasizes that our treasure chest of kisses will never be devoid of love, rather refill itself and connect with everyone around. She shares the wonderful idea of inheriting the boundless love filled in the form of a treasure chest of kisses from our grandparents and passing it on further.
This is an excellent read aloud or a reflective way to end the day as a thoughtful bedtime story. The bountiful illustrations full of wonderful colors will enthrall the readers.
The drawings in this book are so gorgeous! Most even convey a sense of the texture of sorts!
The drawings are not just a beautiful work of art, they are also so well thought out, so thoughtful, so fitting in with the text and with the message of the book!
The message of the book is the most beautiful one also, the book is just like magic – it feels like love is pouring out of each page, of each caption, of each drawing.
Although very visibly heteronormative (I would really, really love to see more inclusive books out there!), it is still breathtakingly beautiful and filled with love, and I can see each and every family enjoying this book together with their little ones.
This is a very sweet title that would be great for a child's first day of school, either at school or home. It seems like an updated version of the book "The Kissing Hand," and lets children know that the kisses that their family gives are always with them. I also liked the fact that the story includes the fact that they are able to share their love from the kisses.
From the time children are born parents have this unconditional love for them. This book is a sweet note to children telling them they can always carry our love with them. This is a cute story to read to little ones. This book would work well as a story time read and activity paired with it.

Thank you NetGalley for the ARC.
It is very adorable to see a sweet message with lovely color grading and graphics. The emphasis on the love that children always bring with them is something I truly appreciate. So comforting and wholesome!
Thanks to Netgalley and Henrietta Publishing for this ARC.
This artwork is the whimsical dreamworld I want to live in. Reminiscent of “The Kissing Hand”, this story focuses on the love inside each of us. It can be tapped into anytime we need it. This would make the perfect gift for any child or new parent.
I absolutely adore the concept of this book. I think it's very sweet and a great reminder for littles. While reading through initially, some of the wording felt a little clunky and I am not a fan of some of the anime-ish pictures, but overall we love it in our house!
"Treasure Chest of Kisses" is a beautiful tale that guides children to discover & cultivate their foundation of self-love! There are so many positive words of affirmation through this book, praise, and physical touch in the form of hugs and kisses. Your "treasure chest" grows with you day by day. No matter what our background is, we all rely on guidance, healing, inspiration, solace, and love. This book not only has a beautiful message, but it is beautifully illustrated. This book definitely belongs in your home, school, and classroom library.
I received an advanced e-copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
A beautiful way to teach a young child how love can be stored in your treasure chest, your heart. The love we are given in our chest will never leave us and can help us when we feel unloved, and can be shared and given to those who need some extra love.
This is a powerful little story with whimsical illustrations and poetic verse.
This story expresses how important love is. How a child first experiences love by the adults in their lives.
The biggest message I took away from this picture book was that we need to dive deep and find that inner love sometimes when we are struggling, when we're sad, when we experience unfortunate circumstances or loss... and we won't have the ability to resource that if we don't have a chest full of love from the adults who watched over us.
A child believes who they are by what the adult tells them. An adult will struggle with identity issues or with self doubt or the inability to just know who they are or what they're worth if they aren't loved on as a child.
I look forward to anything this author publishes in the future, she seems very intuitive and self aware and knows how to translate such an important message for kids to understand. Such a great book to incorporate into a bed time routine.
Thank you Henrietta Publishing and NetGalley for an early copy in exchange for an honest review!
Sweet story and beautiful illustrations. I love how love is explained as passed down for generations and even grows with you
This is a book about love. A love, that we share with our loved ones and they share back with us.
Here in this story it was told for how the love shared with off-springs kept in their heart ever since before their birth. At every step when we receive love we felt overwhelmed and keep it profoundly in our hearts. No just at early young age but even in our old age we behave in the same manner.
This treasure chest fills every time we receive love and get back to us with it's brimful love when we want it most. Remembering the loved ones who passed away, the ones we broke-up with, even the ones get away with an misunderstandings, this chest comes to help always.
This is a very good work in the rhythmic form; and for a debut, I would appreciate it more.
Treasure Chest of Kisses is an adorable story about how all the love and kisses we receive - from our parents, family, friends, and others, gets put inside our treasure chest inside us. Any time we need love, for ourselves or to give to others, we can reach inside our treasure chest of kisses and give love out. The best part about our treasure chest is that it always fills itself back up, so there is enough love to give to everyone!
Thanks Netgalley and the publisher for the opportunity to review this eARC in exchange for my honest review on the book!
I am so excited to share this wonderful heartwarming story with you. I absolutley loved this book. This little adventure was all about the love we carry with us, always. Sky Eiko tells the tale of how the little child collects a treasure chest of kisses all through their life. These mementos of love come from mom, family, friends and so many more. The story helps children learn that even when they are having a hard time or don't know what to do with big emotions they are still filled with a treasure full of love. Even when loved ones aren't close by they are still with them in their heart. The book also included a QR code that opened some exciting things to share with the family, like downloads and resources. This story did an amazing job sharing that even when we are alone the love is always with us. The warm illustrations combined with wonderful flowing text created the perfect heartfelt adventure to share with your little ones.
I received this as an ARC for my honest review but I will certainly be buying this for our little library for my littles to continue to share.
A simplistic and endearing tale of how love shows in many ways. With a rhyming choice of words, a "Treasure Chest of Kisses", is full of heart and hugs along the way. It made me smile, as I read of family and friends and through the topic of love and sympathy. A picture book for all ages.
This book was so adorable, I loved everything about it, the illustrations were so well done, they suited the book perfectly, the story was amazing as well, even thought is very short I could really connect with the characters and feel theirs struggles.
I’m sure the kids are going to be just as enthralled with this amazing book as I was.
I will definitely recommend!
Thank you netgalley and the publisher for this early copy
I LOVED THIS SO MUCH. It’s such a great story filled with so much love. It shows kids the importance of fostering love in kids and also teaching them to draw on that love when they need it and to also share it. It was just so amazing.
A colorful and magical book about the love all of us hold inside. I need to buy this for every child in my life it is absolutely the cutest.
What a precious little book!!! Colorful artwork and rhyming verse to tell us the story of our love “treasure chests” that each of us has within us. Thank you to NetGalley and Sky Eiko for a digital copy of the Treasure Chest of Kisses: I Am Made of Love in exchange for an honest review.
