The Perfect Hug Book Review

Guest Author - Michelle Anne Cope

Do you hug? Do you like to be hugged? What makes the perfect hug? I am sharing this picture book in hope of hugs for all!

Letís start with the definition of hug. A hug can be a sign of affection, congratulations, or comfort. You hug someone by wrapping your arms around them and giving them a gentle firm squeeze. The Perfect Hug by Joanna Walsh and Judi Abbot describes in words and pictures what makes a hug perfect for just about everyone!

The Perfect Hug
A panda bear begins a search for the perfect hug. He knows there are many different types of hugs like wiggly, giggly, tickly and prickly hugs. The problem is he has yet to find the right hug for him.

As readers follow the panda bear on his perfect hug discovery adventure, they will learn what makes a hug perfect. It must be the right size, and the right tightness. Most important of all ó it must be from the perfect person!

Panda bear imagines hugs in outer space. He finds hugs on his journey that are too big, too small, too short and too tall. He travels on land and sea searching for the hug that fits him best.†

Guess what? In the end, he finds his perfect hug. Nope, I will not spoil it for you.

I loved this book. It was easy and fun to read aloud. The size 10 x 10, is perfect to hold, and the illustrations are bright and bold. I do wish the pages had been made a little stronger. The copy I read had a few page tears from being turned many times. Besides that, I highly recommend this book for reading at bedtime, story time, really any time! From a scale of one to five, I give this book a high five.

I hope you give this book a read. Let me know how you and your children liked it. Was there hugging after? Stop by the Reading Site Forum and let me know. You can also stop in to say hello, give me a reading suggestion, or ask a question.

I borrowed this book from the Parsons Branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library in Columbus, Ohio.

Have a great week and Happy Reading!
