I received a complimentary book to keep and a book to give away in exchange for promotion on this post and on social media. This post contains affiliate links.
As most of you know, my toddler loves reading. Despite being 3 years old, she is one of my most fearless readers; devouring through page after page and giggling along to the plot of the story. If there is anything that makes this Mom’s heart soar, it’s watching my daughter fall in love with reading just like her Mom.
Story time is one of our favorite things to do, either right before bed or even just on lazy Sunday afternoons. One of our new favorite books to read is, I’m Going To Give You A Bear Hug by Caroline B. Cooney. This book really interested my toddler with it’s adorable animal theme, bright pictures and cute story line. It demonstrates various hugs for a child using animal comparisons which is such a cute idea! Lily loves sharing what each animal noise makes and sometimes even gives me big ‘bear hugs’ or ‘caterpillar hugs’.
Although I’m always a sucker for a good story line, I have to say the illustrations are just as captivating. Lily really can hold her own while listening to the story, pointing out various animals, colors and even the cute teddy bear that the little boy brings with him to each hug adventure. To us, it’s the perfect bedtime story to enjoy at the end of the day, especially because Zach and I always give Lily a huge hug when we put her to bed.
Although this book is geared towards 4-8 year olds, there is no reason why your toddler or any child around that age wouldn’t enjoy this story. Oh and the best part?
