I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug!, written by bestselling author Caroline B. Cooney, is a playful and comforting bedtime book that imagines all the wonderful ways a child might give and receive a hug.
Whether it’s a big bear, gasp for air, knock over a chair hug or a wet and drippy, slimy, slippy fish hug, children will giggle their way through all the imaginative examples. Cooney’s sweet and simple rhymes encourage playful interaction between parent and child and ultimately help them wind down before they snuggle into bed and drift off to sleep.
I’m Going to Give You a Bear Hug! is a sweet book that children will love. My two year old granddaughter and I read it together. She listened and giggled and smiled at the endearing ending. I've read many of Caroline B. Cooney's books for young adults and enjoyed them. She's done a fantastic job on her first picture book. This is a perfect bedtime book to read with little ones.
