Review from my little one who turns 5 this month. Per my little sugar booger: I like the book because it reminds me of love and family. And the woods because there are bears and the woods have bears. :-)

Time for us to go Mimi's! Dulce suenos!

This is a good book for children who are just beginning to read. It has cute illustrations and it will appeal to young children. It also good for introducing them to what rhyming is. There is not really a plot or storyline so I would not recommend it for anybody other than early readers.

Bear Hugs makes me want to give a hug. The book is for beginning readers and depicts all sorts of hugs with little bear’s parents. Jim Ishi’s illustrations are huggable and adorable. A great book for children of all ages.

The best way to eat breakfast is listening to Claire read my Bear Hugs before she heads off to another day in Kindergarten!

Buku manis untuk belajar membaca. Berisi bermacam-macam jenis pelukan beruang. Tapi satu yang paling menyenangkan adalah berpelukan bertiga: bapak-ibu-anak beruang.

What kind of hug do you like... a growing tall hug, a wiggle hug, or maybe a honey hug? Good for beginner readers
