Time for a Hug - Book Review

By Phillis Gershator and Mim Green
Illustrated by David Walker

Wow, what a message to convey to your children. In this very special book Big Bunny makes sure that every hour Little Bunny gets a hug. No matter what they are doing there is always time for a hug. If only we would all follow this beautiful way of life in our own busy lives.

I loved reading this book with my little girl. I love to hug her as often as possible. I want her to know that I am never too busy for a hug and this was a wonderful way to share that message with her. The beautiful illustrations just brought the book to life. We were able to talk about all the things Little Bunny and Big Bunny did in a day and how during each activity they were still able to stop and hug. There is always time for a hug.

Time for a Hug is a perfect book to add to your child's collection. To add to how touching this book is, it is written by a mother and daughter. Their love for each other is shared through this book in such a way that all parents and children can relate to. "Whether they bake or build, bike or hike, a caring hug always feels right."

This book is published by Sterling Publishing and has a SRP of $9.95. The book is intended for ages 3-5, but with National Hug Day coming up on January 21st I'm sure you can find many people who you would like to know that you are never too busy to hug them!
