Our little friend wanders through the trees, witnessing many other animals from chameleons to giraffes as they snuggle together. "Hug," he says, happily, at first, but then with growing despair as he sees there are no hugs for him. The story is told purely by the expression on the little chimp's face as his hopes are built up and dashed again until eventually, with a huge smile, he finds his mum and reaps the reward.
Hug is a clever, unusual book that portrays the art of children's illustration at its very best: a story brought to life with the stroke of a brush through facial expressions and body language that children will immediately understand.
Ideal for sharing with small ones, this lovely book is a warm, comforting read that cannot fail to please. (Ages 1 to 4) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Hug is a wonderful story, told with simple words and cute illustrations.
I highly, highly recommend this book for the learning opportunities, imagination opportunities, and best of all...a great hug from your little one.
What's great about this book is that because of the limited use of words, a parent can embellish and vary the story each time it's read.
What a touching book. Featuring only three words, this book still manages to carry a lot of emotion! Read morePublished 2 days ago by S. Bola
