Love This Children’s Book – About the Book
I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug!, written by bestselling author Caroline B. Cooney, is a playful and comforting bedtime book that imagines all the wonderful ways a child might give and receive a hug.
Whether it’s a big bear, gasp for air, knock over a chair hug or a wet and drippy, slimy, slippy fish hug, children will giggle their way through all the imaginative examples. Cooney’s sweet and simple rhymes encourage playful interaction between parent and child and ultimately help them wind down before they snuggle into bed and drift off to sleep.

My Review: 3 Reasons to Love This Children’s Book
Who doesn’t love hugs?
And this book is chock-full of many ways to enjoy a hug. (Or maybe I should say a variety of animal hugs!)
Anyway, the topic will tug at the heartstrings of kids and adults alike. I can see where it will also promote hugs, snuggles, and cuddles!
I’m very much a visual person, and most children are, too.
The illustrations by Tim Warnes will not disappoint! With lovable and cuddly creatures, the artwork makes you want to jump into the story for a few of those bear hugs. :)
Wiggly-Giggly Rhyme Time
Reminiscent of Dr. Seuss, the author’s approach to the story with loads of rhymes will surely appeal to children.
And I can’t help but think that it will make this story book a fun favorite with parents as well.
I know I can’t wait to share this beautiful children’s book with my grandchildren!
