“I’m going to give you a bear hug. A show you how much I care hug. A good night, Sleep tight,Way beyond compare hug.”
I’m going to give you a Bear Hug! written by Caroline B Cooney is a bed time book for young children. This hard covered book has brightly colored pages of different animals hugging young children Some of the animals pictured are bear, dog, cat, horse, duck, pig, fish, whale, caterpillar and sheep.
This is a cute short story. I look forward to reading this to my grandsons. I like that the author included several different types of animals in the story, especially the fish and the whale. Young children will be able to learn to say the animal names with repeated reading and interaction. For the more active child, this may not be a good book to read before bedtime as they may want to interact like the characters in the story.
The book is written for children ages 4 to 8. I think this book is for the child that enjoys being read to, more than for the child learning how to read. Some of the words would be a little hard for the average young reader.
With 32 shiny colorful pages, this books gives the adult the opportunity to read to their child a short story that will reaffirm that they are loved. Tim Warness has done a wonderful job illustrating the pictures for this book. While the book is published by a Christian publishing company, the only Christian reference is to say a prayer before bedtime.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher BookLook Bloggers and I have written an honest review.
