The boys and I want to share our current favorite book with you! We got a copy of "I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug," the new children's book by Caroline B. Cooney. I used to read Caroline B. Cooney books when I was in middle school. Do you remember "The Face of the Milk Carton," "Whatever Happened to Janie?," and "The Voice on the Radio"? Or the "Time Travelers" series, like "Both Sides of Time" and "Prisoner of Time"? I loved her books! This is her first children's book, and it is super cute. It is an easy read and an excellent bedtime story.
The story is of a mommy putting her little boy to bed, and she uses the parts of his bedtime routine to give him a different kind of hug. Each page is a different animal . . . I'm going to give you a bear hug, a dog hug, a fish hug, a bug hug, cat hug, etc. The animals mostly correspond with what the little boy is doing. For example, he gets a fish hug when he's in the bathtub, and he gets a sheep hug when mommy puts a warm blanket on him. It's a really sweet rhyming book with whimsical illustrations.
"I'm going to give you a whale hug
A high tide,
Take me for a sail hug."
