Hug ebook

by Jez Alborough

"Alborough's simplicity results in another gem." — SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNALBobo needs a hug. But his friends don't seem to understand. "Hug," he implores, time and again. Time and again his puzzled pals—from the smallest chameleon to the tallest giraffe—shrug and cuddle with their jungle mothers. As the lonely chimp's plea escalates, his friends grow concerned. Can the elephants lead Bobo to his heart's desire? Jez Alborough, the acclaimed author-illustrator of WHERE'S MY TEDDY?, IT'S THE BEAR!, and MY FRIEND BEAR transforms a total of three words—and some of the most tenderly expressive animals ever created—into an endearing tribute to love and belonging.
We bought this for our 2 year old at the insistence of my mother-in-law. I think it's such a cute little story, but I find it hard to read to my daughter. The story is in the pictures, and I don't think she quite comprehends what's going on (and all that is said aloud is "Hug"). This might be for older kids, or maybe I'm just approaching the story wrong. I still love the story, which is why i rated it 4 stars, but for those parents that are looking for something to "read" to your kids instead of just look through, you might want to look elsewhere.
Our three year old daughter really likes this book. She already owns "Goodnight Gorilla", which is another preschool book I would highly recommend, so she was not thrown off by a book with very few words. It is a nice change in reading in that you have to study the faces of the animals and look at their body language to get the full story.
Easy reading. Great for newborn to beginning readers. LOVE this book. I've purchased it 3 times (twice for a gift and once for my home). In our top 3 favorites. Even my hubby doesn't mind this book because it's short and easy.
My 22 month old loves this little book. Although there are minimal words, she loves to flip through the pages and seems to understand who the baby is and who momma is. She points often and says momma and hug.
Great little book about a monkey in search of a hug from his mommy. The story only uses three words (hug, Bobo, and Mommy) and relies on some fantastic illustrations to depict the rest. Very well done - a popular bedtime book in my house.
The only words in this book is "hug, mommy, and Bobo" we add a little story line in because saying "hug? , hug! , HUG" gets a little old. For some reason my son loves his book. He is 18 mo old.
So the only word is 'hug' and when reading to a toddler you really have to dig deep and find different voices and how to read this book with excitement and question so that the toddler gets excited about it... If not the. You are just repeating the word hug repetitively with no emotion and the child will get bored. But the pictures are gorgeous and help provide other talking points with your child to engage them
One of my very favorite kids books! Yes it's super simple, but that makes it open for discussion and interpretation. Every time Bobo says 'hug' he means so much more. I love talking about how much he loves and misses his mommy, how the nice animals are concerned and want to help, and how we should love each other even if we're different. And the last page is a great reminder to hold mom's hand so you don't get lost. And the added bonus? My kid LOVES it!
