... an attractive and appealing book.
... the book’s quick humor makes it easy to embrace.
Oldland’s rustic-styled digital artwork looks like a hip flannel pajama print ... and his pictures play sly comic foil to the earnest text.

Big Bear Hug is a short picture book with an environmental theme about a bear who loves his woods so much he hugs everything (and everyone) in them. One day he comes upon a person cutting down a tree and is faced with a dilemma of how best to defend his forest (he is a bear after all).
While this is, literally, a "tree-hugging" book in the end I thought it was far more about individualism and being true to yourself, keeping the green message clear, but not hitting readers over the head with it, or with guilt. It's cute too, and easily charmed both my children.
Good for libraries that might need a variety of themes, or parents who want to teach care of the environment without taking too hard of a line, or for kids who love animals. Big Bear Hug is one of the better quality books out there, in both content and illustrations.

This book was highly recommended at the holidays. I got it for my grandchildren, but it really did not catch our interests. It jumped around a lot and was not one they would like me to reread to them.
