I'm Going To Give You A Bear Hug (Picture Book Review and Giveaway)

I don't have a "little one" any more, but if I did, I would so enjoy sitting in the rocking chair and reading my latest review book, I'm Going to Give You A Bear Hug, from Zonderkidz.

This is a sweet little bedtime picture book for the youngest among us. It embraces the joy of giving and receiving "Bear Hugs"  before bed. We then go on a rollicking fantastical journey with child and teddy through a variety of other hugs, from the silly to the outright wild, ending up, finally in bed with one last, "Way beyond compare hug."

The illustrations coordinate perfectly with the text, and your child may enjoy observing the teddy bear's zany accompaniment through ten different hug scenarios, as it can be found on every two page spread (Sometimes more than once).

Again, a very sweet book~ available in Hardcover, Board book, and Kindle version.
