Disclosure: I was given a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Do you ever run across a children's book that makes you so happy you paused to read it? That's how I feel about the book "I'm going to give you a Bear Hug!" It's absolutely precious. The words and rhymes will attract even the smallest readers and the illustrations absolutely finish the book to perfection. My 15 year old immediately noticed the child's teddy bear on each page doing something different. And if a teenage boy can enjoy a children's book, you know it's going to be a winner to the smaller ones, too.
This book is sure to become one of the treasured bedtime books in homes everywhere. I know it would have been one we read over and over in our house. While my children are older, we all appreciate good children's literature and each of us have thoroughly enjoyed reading the book.
