I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug!

It's been rainy and dreary and just the best sort of book reading weather.  I was going to save it for under the Christmas tree but with antsy rained in kids, it seemed like the right time to enjoy it. New books are a hot commodity and this new read is being enjoyed non-stop.

I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug!  by Caroline B. Cooney is a fun and easy to love book. This is the perfect bedtime or anytime story. In playful verse the book tells all the ways you might receive a hug.

 "I'm going to give you a bear hug.
 A show you how much I care hug. 
A good night 
Sleep tight 
Way beyond compare hug"

This book creatively explores how a pig, a duck or even a whale might give a hug. It instinctively invites kids to try these hugs out. We weren't half way through and my kids were trying out how these silly hugs might look and feel.

I have found that books that aren't fun to read or fun to look at don't get read much at all in our house.  Cooney delivers in the fun to read department. The book easily rolls off the tongue. It is the perfect combination of sweet and silly. Tim Warnes illustrations capture the mood of the book perfectly.  They are bright, engaging and fit the this book just right. I just loved this full spread picture with the galloping horse.

This is a book any child could enjoy and one to add to your bookshelf!

I received this book in exchange for my honest review from Booklook Bloggers.
