About this title:
Synopsis:
Have a Hug!

There are all kinds of hugs.
Porcupine hugs are done very carefully.
Knee hugs are good for hugging someone tall.
And piggyback hugs are the best way to see a parade.
From birthday hugs to Great-Aunt Mary hugs, every hug has a purpose even a lamppost hug.
You should never hug tomorrow when you can hug today.
But which hug will you choose?

Review:
Can you imagine what it would be like to hug a bear? An octopus? And how does that differ from a brother hug? Or a Great-Aunt Mary hug? Dave Ross and illustrator Laura Rader's A Book of Hugs explores the full spectrum of hugs with bright, cartoonish illustrations and winsome one- or two-line descriptions. "Fish hugs are very cold and seldom returned," for instance. As for tree hugs, "Some trees are easier to hug than others. Note: If you hug a pine tree too long, you may get stuck on it." In the back you'll find "Facts and Hints About Hugging," including "Never hug tomorrow when you could hug today." This is perhaps the quintessential touchy-feely book, but it is awfully cute... and it makes a sweet valentine for kids of all ages.
