Format: Board book
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!

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.

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 have Daddy Kisses at home and my children LOVE it. So naturally we added Mommy Hugs to our collection. Following through with the hugs is a little more difficult than kissing a head or a neck or a paw. We read both books every night to my young children and it's a wonderful way to end each night.

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.

While I wasn't thrilled with the artwork in this series of books, it is still a cute book. We can go over all the different kinds of animals in the book, be silly on each page and mimic what the animals are doing, and these books have taught our son that he is not the only person/creature who has someone that they call "Mommy" or "Daddy". He would at first point to us very confused when we started reading the book, like "Hey, YOU are Daddy/Mommy!" but very quickly caught on and starts pointing at the "parent" animal and the baby animal exclaiming "Daddy/Mommy Bear(or whatever animal)" or "Baby Puppy! (or whatever)". It's endearing, and educational as they learn about this part of life, and differentiate between all the animal species, learn new words, and these books are fairly small too so our son carries them around the house pretending to read them all day too. Cute stocking stuffer or present for Mother's/Father's day for the new parents!

This book is the perfect size for baby hands. I read it to my daughter since the week she was born and now that she's 8 months, she can turn the pages herself and seems to love the colors in the book. It's a super quick read for those nights that you only have time to read one quick book. Our favorite page is the last page, and that's when my daughter knows the "snuggle" is coming :)
