I'm going to give you a Bear Hug! by Caroline B. Cooney

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 was excited to open the sweet picture book I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug!  written by Caroline B. Cooney and illustrated by Tim Warnes.  It is a beautiful hard back children's book with endearing illustrations. The end papers are covered with precious little bear paw prints.  The story is all about hugs and compares hugs to animals all the while subtly telling the reader it is time for bed.  It is appropriate for children 4-8 years old.

I am in love with this book!   I'mGoing to Give You a Bear Hug is simply very fun to read.  You want to curl up next to your little one, hug them while smiling and laughing as you read this book.  The illustrations are perfect.  Not too cutesy, but so endearing.  I found myself smiling while reading this precious story to my to five year old son, and my eight year old wanted to join us as well.


The book was a good reminder to me as a parent to hold my kids a little closer, hug them, and enjoy them.  Times goes so fast.  I highly recommend this book.
