I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug cover


Synopsis:

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.


Review:
This adorable book is perfect for all those lovely snuggly moments, when our little ones want to know how much we love them! Caroline wanted to share an adorable bedtime poem, that she used to recite to her own now grown kids before bedtime., and the results is this adoable book!! Small children will easily relate as the little boy learns all about the different types of animal hugs he has to offer to his mother, before he goes to bed. It's a fun way to wind yor kids down for bed, while offering some great opportunities ofr fun animal learning. The illustrations are perfect to the story, as you can see, making this book a tale to hand down from generation to generatuon, as Caroline has done with her kids, and now yours! It's a lovely book for giving, and keeping!
