Mommy Hugs Hardcover – April 1, 2006
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

PreS-Loving mother/child embraces are counted, from one nuzzle-wuzzle wake-up hug to ten 'I love you...' good-night hugs. The baby's day also includes encouraging two 'Choo-choo! Open wide!' yummy hugs at breakfast, comforting 'I'll always catch you!' sliding hugs at the park, and so on. Each spread features the number word in lower-case letters, the numeral, and countable heart shapes. Katz's trademark round-headed characters are cheerful and exude warmth. The sunny pictures capture familiar activities, and a playful puppy is part of the scene. The collage, gouache, and colored-pencil illustrations have polka-dot and floral patterns that add visual interest. This book is great for interactive baby storytimes.-Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada

PreS. Counting and hugging go arm in arm in this book full of baby love. "One nuzzle-wuzzle wake-up hug" shows Mom burying her face in the baby's pajama-clad body, while on the next page, Baby get a "yummy hug" as Mommy feeds her. She gets a "who made this mess laughing hug" after she has unrolled the toilet paper. Katz gets up close and personal in her illustrations, which always focus on the round-faced mother and baby. The colors are so bright, the shapes so simple, and the patterning so sweet that toddlers, the logical audience, will keep a close eye on the turning pages. And, of course, it would be hard for a mommy to read this without giving up a hug or two. Ilene Cooper

And, on through the day, hugs and kisses are given by mommy, in this case. Hugs are one of the most enjoyable forms of life, and baby knows when he us hugged by his mommy that lee shines through. During the day, you can count the hugs, and mommy hugs are particularly beautiful and meaningful. A child who is hugged will always remember the love that shines through. Have you been hugged by your mommy recently?

We had so much fun nuzzle-wuzzling our way through the book, reading it every night before bed for years. Now that she learned all the words, she reads it to me!
Highly recommend this wonderful and sweet book for bonding with your little one.
