it was amazing

Most animals are easy to hug. You can hug a dog or cat in your own backyard and you might need a ladder, but hugging a giraffe is doable. Elephants like to be hugged around their trunks and baby chicks like sweet, little hugs. But how do you hug a porcupine? Why, very carefully of course!

The gently rhyming text and short sentences make this a wonderful book for a read aloud with toddlers. The bright illustrations, set against a mostly white background, feature a gang of multiracial children who just love to give hugs. The illustrations are large enough for a group storytime, but also include humorous details, such as the little boy putting marshmallows on the porcupine quills.
