I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug!
This is a picture book about all different kinds of hugs. There is a cat hug, a bear hug, a dog hug, and a horse hug. I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a horse hug!
I like all the cute animals in the pictures. They all look sweet, cuddly, and furry – perfect for a hug! I also like how happy the little boy looks, being snuggled by his mom and the animals. It is adorable how the little boy’s teddy bear goes on all the animal-hugging adventures with the boy!
The pictures are cute, pretty, colorful, fun, and happy! Some of my favorite parts in the book are when, in the dog hug, the dog chases the little boy up the stairs. Then, they cuddle on the floor. The little boy tries to play with the cat, but the cat only wants to snuggle. It is also my favorite when the little boy gets to ride a horse in the rain. I think that would be so much fun and such an adventure!
