Hug Me

National Hugging Day 2018


Today is National Hugging Day- and here is one of my favourite hugging characters- Hugless Douglas! Warm and humorous, we have reviewed a number of books about Davis Melling's lovable bear, each like a hug in itself! Each offers much to discuss and much to enjoy!

Another book offering hugs is ...'HUG!' by Jez Alborough. In this delightful book, little Bobo searches for someone to give him a hug . Almost wordless, the illustrations are a complete delight!


'Hug Me' by Simona Ciraolo is a lovely story about a little cactus, Felipe, who is desperate for affection and comfort. At the end, he finds a friend- a kindred spirit- and the hug he's longing for.


So -many book hugs to one and all on National Hugging Day!
