This new board book edition of "The Hug," with brand-new text and illustrations, is the story of one lonely hug. Feeling unneeded, the hug sets out to become something different.

This is a wee little book but the story is full of love and hugs. A hug wanted to be something else, tried other things, wasn't happy until it began hugging again. Such a lovely little story.

This book is just a little to "cheese wad" for me. No big positive reaction from Violet but she will sit through the whole thing. If done better, it's a good idea but I think it misses the mark.
