My son is 7 months old and he loves this book.
M. Salazar
He likes making the noises the different animals make and we have started having him kiss/hug his stuffed animals in the same way as we are kissing/hugging him.
Rachael E. Stanley
The pictures are bright, simple, sweet and fun without being too cluttered or loud.

This is one of the first books I read to my baby because it was so interactive and fun. Each page shows the sweet way that mommy animals hug their babies, for example: mommy cat hugs her kitten with a nuzzle. Of course, then you can act each "hug" out with your child (that's the fun part). The illistrations are simple and sweet as well.
My son loves this book, as well as the companion, Daddy Kisses. The two together would make a great gift.

This was one of our baby's first books. It's short enough to hold a baby's attention, and is a fun way to introduce babies to animals and their babies. The pictures are bright, simple, sweet and fun without being too cluttered or loud. We loved Daddy Hugs as well!

There is nothing like the hug of a mother, be she a parrot, polar bear or a human. Mommy Hugs, the book, is as great as mommy's hugs.

We read this book every night before bed along with the Daddy Kisses book by the same author. I get to do all the different types of hugs (his daddy gets to read the kisses book). My son has taken to saying "Uh Oh!" when we get to the Mommy polar bear hugs her cub with a tickle" page because he knows he's getting a tickle. He likes making the noises the different animals make and we have started having him kiss/hug his stuffed animals in the same way as we are kissing/hugging him.

My one year old now brings me this book in the evening and sits next to me to read it. She really likes when we act out the book... mommy parrot hugs her chick with a nibble... oh yes I have it memorized and my little one melts in giggles when she gets nibbled. It is a great book lovely pictures. A must for a new mom or dad.

The books in this series are wonderful. Originally I bought them for my daughter simply because I loved the illustrations, but they are much more. My daughter now knows the names of so many baby animals, and it goes beyond the basics, such as "puppy" and "kitten". The story is as basic as can be and that is part of the beauty of the book. The ending with "my mommy hugs me" always delighted my child. She is six now and rarely looks at the books, but we are already reading them to her one year old sister.

My daughter had "Daddy Kisses" by Anne Gutman, so when I saw "Mommy Hugs" by the same author, I absolutely had to get it. It was well worth the price, while it's not very long, It's a sweet and fun book to read to your child. We like to take turns reading both of these books, while the other acts out the part. It's a lot of fun, and our daughter loves it!

It is a cute story however when we got the book it was already damaged - which was confusing because we thought we were buying it new.
