Time for a Hug by Phillis Gershator, Mim Green


Time for a Hug by Phillis Gershator, Mim Green

When is it time for a hug? Anytime! This feel-good story-now in paperback-assures kids there's plenty of love to go around the clock. From the moment Little Bunny wakes up in the morning until the moon comes out and the stars shine, every hour includes a warm hug from Big Bunny. Whether they bake or build, bike or hike, a caring hug always feels just right. This is a book that is generous with love, and full of the sweetest illustrations you've ever seen.


[A] sweet, brief rhyming tale celebrating hugs at any hour of the day . . . The pleasingly predictable rhyme will have preschoolers chiming in all the way to the page where the covers are pulled up. Worth a pause and may well inspire a hug or two. --Kirkus Reviews

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
